I appears that I have to have a named set that is exactly 6 states plus an undefined state with value 255 in order for me to even browse to it when changing, SP_D, PV_D, etc. This is fine, however, the faceplate looks at the name set via .A_OPSEL in order to determine the number of selections. This determines visibility on the faceplate. I can modify the named set after the fact so that there are only the states I want and then the correct number of buttons show up. But then I can't use that named set when setting up other EDC blocks. There is a setting called Number of States in the State Mask for the EDC, but this doesn't appear to be a parameter that you can browse out to in Configure. None of the state mask properties (STATEIN0, STATEOUT0, CST, ST, AWST, etc) seem to give me any information that I could use to write a custom visibility script for the faceplate. I really don't want to have 6 buttons on the faceplate at all times. Hopefully I'm missing something.
