O-00054 not coming up in ORACLE forms -  record is locked

Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I have an application that does not load the form if the record is in use by another user. I am trying to get it to give a message to the user so it is clear what is happening and they can come back to the record later. So far so good - thanks to Experts Echange for getting me that far. I looked at other solutions,  and, based on them, put code in my on-error trigger so I could verify what code I am getting - I am expecting sqlcode -54. Problem is - although it attempts to lock the record and fails - I get ORA-0000 normal, successful completion
message ('Yes we have an error :' ||sqlerrm);
