Why would you want to lock a file on checkin?   (Normally, you would lock a file on checkout).

Hi Geoff,
This was request from one of my customer. To be honest I didn't think about that too much. Is it possible to automatically lock the file on checkout? That could be a good work around.

Automatically locking a file on checkout (which is the normal time to lock a file, to prevent parallel development on the file) is supported in the web client.   Support for automatically locking a file in the other clients (Eclipse, etc.) is currently being targeted for 5.0.2 ( [CCM] Support for pessimistic locking / reserved checkout (171284) )

I don't think it is possible in RTC.
