Remarks

When you calling the AddNewItem method, it begins an add transaction. You should call the CommitNew or CancelNew methods to end the add transaction.

A new item always appears in the collection view. Any filtering, sorting, or grouping that is applied to the view is applied to the new item when CommitNew is called.
