I looked at animations initially but there doesn’t seem to be a way to apply animation control to the Logix_PIDE faceplate, which is why I was looking at the parameter file.

I did go back and look at the page again.  I noticed that each of the graphics that the operator clicks on had a “patch” around it.  This patch was the area the operator had to click on in order to get the faceplate to appear.

Turns out I could use animation to control who sees that patch based using the
Function->Security->CurrentUserHasCode().

Before applying the animation control, a user in the Operator group would see the orange patch around the control valve (shown in valve_with_patch.png).  By applying animation control shown in the expression_editor.png file, I was able to hide the orange patch around the control valve from the operator group (see valve_without_patch.png).
