HTML Input Control Elements Reset


<input type="reset" value="Reset">

An input of type reset creates a button which, when clicked, resets all inputs in the form it is contained in to their default state.

  • Text in an input field will be reset to blank or its default value (specified using the value attribute).
  • Any option(s) in a selection menu will be deselected unless they have the selected attribute.
  • All checkboxes and radio boxes will be deselected unless they have the checked attribute.

Note: A reset button must be inside or attached to (via the form attribute) a <form> element in order to have any effect. The button will only reset the elements within this form.
