LockItem Method

combit.ListLabel25.Repository Namespace > IRepository Interface : LockItem Method

ID of the repository item to lock.

Gets called when an item of the repository is loaded to be edited (i.e. project files) to lock it for exclusive access.

Function LockItem( _
   ByVal id As String _
) As Boolean
bool LockItem( 
   string id
bool LockItem( 
   String^ id



ID of the repository item to lock.

Return Value

Return false in case the item is already locked by an other user (no blocking lock!), or true if the lock was acquired or is not needed.

Usually other users should not be able to edit the item at the same time. It is advisable to implement a fallback in case UnlockItem does not get called (e.g. due to an error).
