The HtmlInputReset class is derived from the HtmlInputButton class and is used to create a button control on a Web page that resets form controls to their initial values. The HtmlInputReset control is often used with the HtmlInputSubmit control, which is used to create a button control that submits the form.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of HtmlInputReset, see the HtmlInputReset constructor.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HtmlInputReset control to reset the values of a form on a Web page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

 <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 
<script runat="server">

     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
       // Define an HtmlInputReset button using the default constructor.
       HtmlInputReset reset1 = new HtmlInputReset();
       reset1.ID = "ResetButton1";
       reset1.Value = "Reset 1";

       // Define an HtmlInputReset button as type "reset".
       HtmlInputReset reset2 = new HtmlInputReset("reset");
       reset2.ID = "ResetButton2";
       reset2.Value = "Reset 2";

       // Define an HtmlInputReset button as custom type "custom".
       // This is not a valid HTML input type so a standared input 
       // field will be displayed.
       HtmlInputReset reset3 = new HtmlInputReset("custom");
       reset3.ID = "ResetButton3";
       reset3.Value = "Reset 3";

       // Clear the PlaceHolder control and add the Reset buttons to it.
       PlaceHolder.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br />"));
       PlaceHolder.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br />"));
