How to indicate window needs saving

It would be nice if this could be under programmer control.  I have an 
app that can have changes made to it that DON'T constitute a "change."  
For example, if you get a record from the database to display it, it 
changes the contents of the fields on the screen from what they were 
before but if you don't make any changes to this record, I don't want to 
save it.  I guess it comes down to what your idea of a "change" is.  It 
would be ideal if you could have a property on fields, checkboxes, etc. 
that would be something like "enable change notification" so I could 
decide which fields I care about and which I don't.  I guess you'd have 
to have another function/command that would clear the "dirty" flag after 
you loaded a new (but as yet unchanged) record.
