How to bind createentry without calling the backend.

I have an SAPUI5 application that allows the user to create a new record. The view I'm using is bound to an oData model. I use the Model.createEntry method to create the new entry but when I bind the context to the view, the model performs a GET request to the service for the record with the temporary key of the new entry context.

Obviously, this returns an error from service. How do I do this without triggering the GET request?

		 * creates a new entity and saves off the existing context so the focus will return
		 * to it if the user cancels the save.  This will also clear the selected item
		 * from the list.
		addNewDetail: function(sEntityPath, oEntityProperties) {
			this.getModel().metadataLoaded().then(function() {
				this.getViewModel(this.getMasterPage()).setProperty("/lastContext", this.getView().getBindingContext());
				this.getViewModel(this.getMasterPage()).setProperty("/lastItem", this.getMasterList().getSelectedItem());
				var newContext = this.getModel().createEntry(sEntityPath, {
					properties: oEntityProperties
		this.getModel().metadataLoaded().then(function() {
		//			this.getView().unbindElement();
					this.getViewModel().setProperty("/hasChanged", true);

I found out what it was. The form I was binding to had controls bound to Navigation properties of the entity. This appears to force the model to call the Get service method with $expand for the Navigation properties. Once I unbound these controls the calls to the service did not happen.
