A "reset" input field is defined as <input type="reset" .../>. "reset" input fields can be used to create reset buttons in a form. When a reset button is clicked, the form will be refreshed by replacing user entered values with default values. Only one other attribute that is useful to this "reset" input type:

  • value="buttonValue" - Specifies the value to be displayed on the reset button. The default is value="Reset".

Here is a tutorial example with two reset button input fields:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
