AsyncRuleHandler & IsNew

AsyncRuleHandler & IsNew

Morning, as part of a business rule I'm trying to write, I need to check 2 things:
  1. IsNew == true, and
  2. if a certain key already exists in the DB
The server call is easy, just a simple AsyncRuleHandler, but I don't seem to have a way to check IsNew (since you can't add an AsyncRuleHandler as an instance validation rule.)

Any thoughts?

When you call AddRule() to add an async rule method to a property, there's an optional overload of AddRule() where you can pass an array of other properties that should be provided to the rule method.

The array is of IPropertyInfo objects - and there's no IPropertyInfo for IsNew... But you can add one to your class - it shouldn't cause any issue since it is just metadata - and then you'd be able to have the rules subsystem provide the IsNew value to your rule method.

I am kicking myself for not thinking of that...  Thanks, Rocky!
