Clear search form?

Thank you, Bahar! That does the trick. But I have a couple of follow up questions ...

1. Is there a way to make this button look the same as the Caspio-generated "Search" button?

2. Part of my form includes some check boxes that show and hide parts of the form. I would actually want to make this button only clear the form questions but not the check boxes if they are indeed checked. Could I write a function that would do that and make a button like this control the function instead of resetting everything?

Hi Mike,

1. To get the style class of the search button you can add the class into that code as below:

<input type="reset" value="Reset" class = "cbSearchButton"/>

2. In this case, you need to write a Java Script function to clear the fields values and call the function on the button onclick event.
I do not have a sample code of this, but you should be able to do it if you know Java Script, here is a good source of Java Script tutorials:
or you might want to have Caspio Professional Services to custom develop the script for you.

Thanks again -- but that still doesn't seem to work. The button still looks the same, without the Caspio style.

To write a function, I'll need to encase that in Java tags -- does that work in an HTML block? I tried putting the button in the footer and it creates problems with the other Java code I have there.

I have the reset button on the search page:

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

But if I first search for something and then returns to the search page through the "Search again" link, then the previous search criteria are saved, and if I press Reset, they will be restored.

Can I change this so that also these entries are cleared when pressing Reset?

Thanks for any suggestions.

When you embed the DataPage in a web page "class = "cbSearchButton" won't work in here:


<input type="reset" value=" Reset " class = "cbSearchButton"/>
You can add a style tag to your HTML block where you have your button tag and copy paste the style of the DataPage if it is not an image button. For instance:


background-color: #2A497D;
border-color: #2A497D;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: Verdana;
font-size: 12px;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: bold;
height: auto;
margin: 0 3px;
text-align: center;
vertical-align: middle;
width: auto;
<input id ="resetbutton" type="reset" value="Reset" />
