and the suggestion I see that looks to be what I want is "To test whether a lock is held on a page already on your own clipboard, call the function rule isPageLocked(tools, pagename)."
I have tested this function and the return value has been false even when the lock is definitely held by another operator.
I also noticed that the method used in the function is (tools.getDatabase().getLockManager().isLocked(aPage, info) == true) however in the resources>API Engine>Database>LockManager documentation it is indicated that isLocked is a deprecated method.
There is a suggestion to use lockExists(String, StringMap) instead. is there an OOTB function that uses this method instead? How does one call such a method outside of using a function if that is possible.

@sarah GODFREY Thank you for the suggestion. It appears to be exactly what I was looking for and I will be trying that function out right away. Well, as soon as my tracer begins to cooperate. This WAS exactly what I was looking for and I created a when WhenLockHeldByAnotherOperator which checked if the value of the function was -1, the value that the function passes when the lock IS held by another operator, and was able to reuse that for all the controls I wanted disabled.
