                    this.file = this.item.get_file();
                    this.file.checkOut();
                    clientContext.load(this.file)
                    clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.OnLoadSuccess), Function.createDelegate(this, this.OnLoadFailed));            }
