[WI 243693] Locks created in RTC plugin for Visual Studio should prevent others from making changes
If you lock a part in Visual Studio with the RTC Plugin, it should lock it, and prevent others from making changes to the part. The current process allows others to continue making changes to the part. It does however prevent them from checking in their changes while the part remains locked. This will inevitably cause a conflict with the change sets, and require conflict resolution. This works if you only have code changes, but if you have changes to forms or controls on those forms, you pretty much have to undo your local changes, and then apply them after you accept the incoming changes.
The coder chooses a part in the solution explorer in Visual Studio, and then selects the lock option. The part is then locked. When another coder decides to make changes to that same part, there should be a message that pops up to tell the second person that someone else has locked that part for editing.
