IsChanged function in Apex

Developer Tools

You all have probably come across the function ISCHANGED available in formulas. Many a times we come across situations in an Apex trigger where we need to compare the value of a field on a record before update and after update. Today, the only way to do this is to fetch the old instance of the record from the map Trigger.OldMap and compare it with the record from the map Trigger.NewMap. It would be really helpful if there was a function IsChanged in apex which would return a boolean value on passing the field on the record as parameter.This way, salesforce can optimize the code that is being written by various developers to achive the same result. This would also help the developers a lot. Do vote on this idea if you support this idea so that we can see this in the latest release in future.
