Gets the value determining REEDITindicating that the current row was changed, and will be save to the database, after the SavingRow event will execute.

Namespace:  Firefly.Box
Assembly:  Firefly.Box (in Firefly.Box.dll) Version: 3.4.23.6473 (3.4.23.6473)

Syntax

C#
public bool RowChanged { get; }
Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public ReadOnly Property RowChanged As Boolean
Visual C++
public:
property bool RowChanged {
	bool get ();
}

Remarks

The RowChanged property is set to true, if the value of a column that is part of the Columns property collection was changed.
A Column value can change without settings the RowChanged property, if the column's OnChangeMarkRowAsChanged property is set to false, or if the value was set using the fixme method.
The RowChanged property affects the behavior of SavingRow event, see it for in depth coverage of the subject.
