Open record status

Hi all!

I am developing a FM Go app and I discovered that I sometimes edit a record and not commit it and then put the phone down, and I don't want layouts to auto save changes. I want to indicate on the layout somehow that a record is in an open state. I tried creating a save button with conditional formatting colors to show the different state of the record. I tried using the  Get ( RecordOpenState ) but I cannot get it to work. I also tried using the same Symbol and I expected the result to show "1" when I made a change in a field, but it remained "0"


When a change is made in a record and it has not been committed, is the considered an Open Record or Active Record?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
