Locking (and releasing) messages for blocks and OS areas is used when the plant operator
wants to lock all messages of an interrupt-capable block or OS area.
You hide individual messages to reduce the number of messages displayed in process
mode. The messages are entered in a history list. The following variations are used to hide
and display messages in PCS 7:
