Model Object Miscellaneous Functions boolean model
true if this object hasn't been saved yet (in other words, no matching record exists in the database yet).
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>
