Try turning the show grid option on. The grid will disappear when you leave edit mode.

I think the OP was referring to a way to know programmatically when the patch gets locked/unlocked, otherwise the question wouldn’t make much sense. It’s indeed weird that there’s no standard object for this, however, you may try recompiling [quebec] for Windows.

There’s js ej.lock.js in the ejies which should do more or less what quebec does.

Never mind — I see that quebec source is available from a separate git.
Very cool.

even transfer ownership
