<input> - reset


HTML DOM Reset object


Reset object

Each time the <input type="reset"> tag appears in an HTML form, a Reset object is created.

When the reset button is clicked, the values of all input elements in the containing form are reset to their default values. The default value is specified by the HTML value attribute or the JavaScript defaultValue attribute.

The reset button triggers the onclick handle before resetting the form, and this handle can be canceled by returning fasle.

You can access a reset button by iterating over the form's elements[] array, or by using document.getElementById().
