I'm working on a legacy code and I'm not supposed to refactor it too much.

There is a part where from ItemAdding and ItemUpdating Event Receiver I need to know the information that is available on the New Form.

The first thing that comes to my mind is properties.AfterProperties because it's already used in the Event Receiver.

But is it even possible to use New Form somehow to make a new property to appear in properties.AfterProperties without adding a new field to list to which Event Receiver is attached?

I was forced to add a new field in list schema to be able to use it in the Event Receiver - I couldn't find any other solution.
