Collections provide a handy means of getting a blank model - e.g.:
Is there any means of doing this from an existing model without having to call for the collection - in other words directly from the instance? Something like this:
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load(43); $productNew = $product->getNewEmptyItem();
I do realize I could call
getCollection() on the product first - not sure if this has some overhead.
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product'); produces the desired result. Obviously. What I'm looking for is a means of getting a blank object without reinstantiating the model.
Perhaps I just need to switch to using singletons to ease my mind.
