Most Database apps have the idea of an "insert row", that is a fresh new
record created on the "new/insert"-event or when the user navigates
after the last record from the underlying table.

If this insert row record (only existing on the client side) is filled
with at least some data and the user clicks "insert" again the insert
row is posted to the table and emptied, so a second new record is
prepared at the client (not posted yet). But it is only one at a time.
