Please Help Me Out.......
Hi Avinash,

You can get it by using Dynamic Apex:
Map<String, Schema.SObjectType> m =  Schema.getGlobalDescribe();
Please let me know if helped.

Hi Avinash,
Please check the below code we should use predefined methods which are provided in schema class and also check the code to retrieve object through SOQL Queries.
VisualForce Page:
<apex:page controller="schemademo2" >
  <apex:form >
    <apex:pageBlock >
      <apex:pageBlockSection id="fields" >
         <apex:selectList value="{!selectedobject}" label="Object:::" size="1">
          <apex:selectOptions value="{!objname}"/>
            <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" action="{!searchFields}"/>
         <apex:pageBlockSectionItem >
            <apex:selectList value="{!selectedfield}" label="Field:::" size="1">
              <apex:selectOptions value="{!fldname}" />
               <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" action="{!searchValues}"/>
         <apex:pageBlockSectionItem >
            <apex:selectList value="{!selectedvalue}" label="Values:::" size="1" id="values" >
              <apex:selectOptions value="{!valname}" />

public class schemademo2 {   
  public string selectedobject{get;set;}
  public List<selectoption> objname{get;set;}
  public string selectedfield{get;set;}
  public List<selectoption> fldname{get;set;}
  public string selectedvalue{get;set;}
  public List<selectoption> valname{get;set;}
  public boolean pb1{get;set;}
  Map<string,schema.sobjectType> mobj = schema.getGlobalDescribe();
public schemademo2(){
  objname = new List<selectoption>();
  Map<string,schema.sobjectType> mobj = schema.getGlobalDescribe();
  List<string> entities = new List<string>(mobj.keyset());
  objname.add(new selectoption('---Select Object---','----Select Object---'));  
  for(string f:entities){ 
   if (f.contains('__c')) 
  // if (!f.contains('__c'))  
  objname.add(new selectoption(f,f));
public PageReference searchFields() {
  Map<string,sobjectField> mfld = mobj.get(selectedobject).getDescribe().fields.getMap();
  fldname = new List<selectoption>();
  List<string> fldentities = new List<string>(mfld.keyset());
  fldname.add(new selectoption('---Select Field---','----Select Field---'));
  for(string sf:fldentities){
    fldname.add(new selectoption(sf,sf));
    return null;
   public PageReference searchValues() {
     string dquery = 'select '+selectedfield+' from '+selectedobject;         
     List<Sobject> vals = Database.query(dquery);
     valname= new List<selectoption>();
           for(sobject val:vals){
       valname.add(new selectoption(string.valueof(val.get(selectedfield)),string.valueof(val.get(selectedfield))));
       return null;

hope it will be helpful.

If you don't need to do it programatically, there are a couple of tools I use. 

sftoolkit.co has a number of useful tools.

Hi @Rahul Kumar,

The code which you have provided will give only  custom objects.My requirement is to also get standard business objects( like account, lead , contact) and to avoid objects like(profiles,record types etc)
