IsNew?
« on: August 14, 2005, 11:17:32 pm »
Exactly what does the EA.Element IsNew attribute mean?

The Help file says: Read/Write. Boolean value indicating element is new or not. 1 = true, 0 = false  
which is tautological. ::)

What are the semantics of IsNew?

Cheerz,
Paolo

Further investigation seems to suggest that IsNew is permanently set to True.

Maybe some indication that the element is new ;D
So you have to decide when to reset the flag. After 0.000000(...)1 seconds, after one day ???

Don't cross your bridges before you come to them.
