public boolean isModified()

Legal values

  • true if the view is modified

The IsModified property can be used to determine if the current view snapshot on the Notes® client corresponds to the real state of the view on the server. The view on the server can change as a result of multiple users accessing it and this property can be used to determine if the view needs refreshing.

The IsModified property will always return true for programs accessing views remotely, and false when accessing views via agents or standalone applications.
