need help in deeep clone to be automatic

hi everyone,


I have an visual force page which has both patrent and child values on click of Clone button need tolone values.

But this should perform automatic even if we add fields to the custom object ,without including fields in query in each time.

Can anyone help me with the sample code.


Thanks in advance,



To clone the record with in VF page Table,

<apex:page controller="clonerecords">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:pageBlock >
            <apex:pageBlockSection >
                <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!records}" var="x">
                    <apex:column headerValue="Clone">
                        <apex:commandLink Value="Clone" action="{!clonerec}">
                            <apex:param name="xId" value="{!x.Id}" assignTo="{!xId}"/>
                    <apex:column headerValue="EmpName">
                    <apex:column headerValue="DeptName">
public with sharing class clonerecords {
    public Id xId{get;set;}
    Employeee__c lstonerec=new Employeee__c();
    public PageReference clonerec() 
        lstonerec=[select Id,name, from Employeee__c where Id=:xId];
        Employeee__c empobj=lstonerec.clone(false);
        insert empobj;
        pagereference ref=new pagereference('/apex/insertingrecordvfpage');
        return ref;
    List<Employeee__c> lstemp=new List<Employeee__c>();
    public List<Employeee__c> getRecords() {
        lstemp=[select id,name, from Employeee__c];
        return lstemp;



i want to perform cloning with map.

Map<String, Schema.SObjectField> M =Schema.SObjectType.Billing__c.fields.getMap();


Could you please share your sample code (What you have implemented till)?

public class PurchaseOrderCloneWithItemsController {
    //added an instance varaible for the standard controller
    private ApexPages.StandardController controller {get; set;}

    private Purchase_Order__c po {get;set;}
    // set the id of the record that is created -- ONLY USED BY THE TEST CLASS
    public ID newRecordId {get;set;}

             newPO = po.clone(false);
