Querying fieldset

Hi,

How can we query fieldset in a controller.

I don't think you can access fieldsets via Apex at the moment.  If you look at this blog post:

Great question. There is unfortunately no way to access Field Sets metadata in Apex currently. Ideally this should be supported via a Apex describe call (something like Account.sObjectType.getDescribe().fieldSets().fieldsInFieldSet();). However, this is not currently supported. Therefore you do have to make sure that the SOQL query includes all the fields that could possibly be included in the Field Set.
