The HTMLFormElement.reset() method restores a form element's default values. This method does the same thing as clicking the form's reset button.

If a form control (such as a reset button) has a name or id of reset it will mask the form's reset method. It does not reset other attributes in the input, such as disabled.

Syntax

HTMLFormElement.reset()

Example

document.getElementById('myform').reset();
