Resetting a form is sometimes needed while filling up a form. If the user has filled the form but wants to go for a few changes throughout it, then instead of unchecking each checkbox & radio button, deleting the text in the textboxes one by one, the form should be cleared all at once. This can be achieved dynamically using jQuery.

jQuery reset() Method

This is a jQuery built-in method, which helps clear up all the input values within a form in one go.



The form is selected using the appropriate selector and then it is reset using the reset() method. This reset method can be set as a function for a click event of a button.

Let's understand this better with the help of an example:
