We want to create a copy of the object being edited before making any changes to the objects. We are using MVVMLight with WPF. Kindly suggest some approaches to implement object cloning using MVVMLight.

In your view model just make a backup of the object.

Dim backup as MyService.MyObject
Dim theObject as MyService.MyObject


Sub cmdEdit_Click
  backup = theobject
  edit = true
end sub

Sub RollBack
  theobject = backup
end sub

@ged325: I assume the above will create a shallow copy whereas I require the Deep Copy of the object being edited so that at any stage user can revert back to the original values.

then instead of backup use clone.

backup = theobject.Clone()

theobject = backup.Clone()

I have solved this issue by creating an extension method for making clones of the entities using serialization.
