isNew()


Model Object Miscellaneous Functions boolean model


Returns true if this object hasn't been saved yet (in other words, no matching record exists in the database yet). Returns false if a record exists.

// Create a new object and then check if it is new (yes, this example is ridiculous. It makes more sense in the context of callbacks for example)
employee = model("employee").new()>
<cfif employee.isNew()>
// Do something...
</cfif>
