Don't asking to check-out a file if I'm not allowed to do that

Vault must check if the file is locked or not before asking to check out.

 

If the file is locked => don't ask, just open-it read only.

If the file is not locked => ask if you want to check out.

 

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if this is a Vault thing or the application that is used to open the file.  I know if a .dwg is opened from Vault Explorer that is not checked out, once Autocad gets control, it will prompt "xyz.dwg is currently in use or is read-only. Would you like to open the file read-only?". Only way to avoid this is to check-out the file in VE before its opened.

The checkout prompt is a vault thing.  The Read Only prompt is a very annoying AutoCAD thing.

 

If I can't check it out, don't ask me to check it out.  (This is for another ideastation) If the file is read only, don't let me modify it... also, don't consider zoom or pan a modification.
