Getting the RDR while in Display mode

I want to add a button that will copy a limited number of fields from a record while in display mode and create a new record in the same table. For example, a salesperson creates a new job for a customer, the same customer wants a few extra jobs done, and the salesperson clicks "copy job" to create the similar, but different jobs. We can't do this using "add similar" because much of the data in the record is pulled from separate tables. The problem with copying the entire record is it populates a few fields that should not be pre-populated. 

I think one way to do this is using GenAddRecordForm and querying the existing record for the fields we want, then placing those variables into the GenAddRecordForm request. Can you point me to anything to get started on this? The biggest obstacle for me is the code to get the existing record ID when viewing it in display mode (and then I need to know how to get the query done and put the results in an array the is used with GenAddRecordForm). 


The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly.
