bursting via kxl
I'm working with a KXL that uses GETENTM to select entities, GetSelected to retrieve the handles, and then edits the entity properties.  If the entity is a DP fastener, it retrieves the fastener information using GetFastenerData, then it bursts the fastener(s).  The problem is that once it's burst, the handle and entity ID changes, so I can no longer access that entity, and if I set the properties before bursting it, they're lost once it's burst.

Is there any way to burst a fastener entity and keep track of the newly created solid?

There used to be a system variable @lastid which was the ID of the most recently created entity, but that seems to no longer exist.
