The Get(OpenRecordState) Function
This function returns the state of the current record for the current user. The state refers to if a user has their cursor within one of the fields and thereby locking the record. The results of this state are returned by this function in the following manner …
0 – if the record is closed
1 – if this is a newly created record and the current user is still adding the first round of data to it
2 – if this is a previously created record and the current user is currently modifying the data within that record or they simply have their cursor in one of its fields.
This function is not network aware, it will not tell you if another user has a record opened or not.
