Locks table tools
The locks table can be used to view locks or release existing route and event locks with the buttons at the top of the toolbar. A lock or group of locks can be highlighted by selecting the lock records in the table.
Note:The Do not prompt to acquire event locks check box is unchecked by default. If you want locks to be automatically acquired when editing in Event Editor and no prompt message to appear, check the check box. This option will only be applied to the local machine.
The table is populated with 25 locks per page. To browse through the pages of locks, use the Next Page button , Last Page button , Previous Page button , First Page button , and the page number drop-down list.
The LRS Locks table contains route, line, and event locks. The easiest way to differentiate between the lock types is to look at the contents of the Event column. If a cell in the Event column is populated, it is an event lock (point 2 above). If a cell in the event column is blank, it is a route or line lock (point 1 above).

Filters in the locks table
As Location Referencing users complete everyday editing workflows, the locks table could have route and event locks from a variety of users, in different versions, on a variety of events, and on a variety of routes. To expedite the sorting of the locks in the table, filters are available based on the user, version, event, and route in which the locks were acquired. The filters can be used individually or in combination to only show the list of locks meeting those conditions.
