How to check ifdirty (is modified) for View Object?

Requirement – Checking if data modified in viewobject ADF

Solution-You can use isDirty() method provided by API to get status

 DCBindingContainer bind =(DCBindingContainer)BindingContext.getCurrent().getCurrentBindingsEntry();
        JUCtrlHierBinding object = (JUCtrlHierBinding)bind.findCtrlBinding("DepartmentVO1"); // or get ViewObject form Iterator in ADFUtils.
        ViewObject deptVo = object.getViewObject(); 
        Boolean b = deptVo.getApplicationModule().getTransaction().isDirty();This gives Boolean value of True/False. 

another way

DCBindingContainer dcBindingContainer=(DCBindingContainer)
//Code goes here...

few more use case i found on internet i.e, so thought of sharing that as well –

1. If you are using iterator based UI component like table:
Expression #{row.row.entities[0].entityState} will return state viz. (0 – New, Modified – 2, Unmodified – 1, Initialized – -1 where row refers to the table node and row.row is the instance of row in the iterator/table.

The following expression also notify that there is dirty data available –

-> #{!bindings.EmployeesView1Iterator.dataControl.TransactionDirty}   // this statment will notify that there is uncommitted or unsaved data in the iterator
-> #{!bindings.Commit.enabled}
-> #{!controllerContext.currentRootViewPort.dataDirty}
-> #{!controllerContext.currentViewPort.dataDirty}

Creating new row of view object in ADF | Techartifact

Requirment – Creating new rows through the view object

Solution-Create a new view row by calling createRow() on the view object as shown in the following code snippet:

/**The createEmployee is a custom method defined in application
* module implementation class.

public void createEmployee () {
//Get the view object
ViewObject employee= findViewObject("EmployeeVO");
// Create a row and fill in the columns.
Row row = employee.createRow();
row.setAttribute("Name", "Vinay");
row.setAttribute("EmpId", 1);
//Insert row in to the default row set

You can also use createAndInitRow(AttributeList initVals) on the view object to create a new view row. This API allows you to initialize the row with an attribute list.
