URL Hacking

Hi,

 

I have a requirement where I need to customize cloning.

 

For that I created a custom button and did URL hacking which worked.

 

But I had a requirement because of which I had to override the Clone page with a custom VF page.

Now the URL hacking is not working.

 

Please suggest a workaround for this

 

Thanks

I assume you mean you added clone=1 to the URL? Once you go to a VF page, that parameter is useless. You'll have to detect the parameter (i.e. ApexPages.currentpage().getParameters().get('clone')), retrieve the record if it exists (standard query), then use the clone() function of SObject to create a new copy in memory that doesn't have an ID.
