Syntax:
onreset="action"

The onreset event occurs when a user resets or clears a form, rather than submitting. The event causes a script to execute that performs a desired task. For example, you could call a function or display an alert box offering additional information to the user.

These six events are useful when dealing with forms and form elements:
 

  • onblur - runs a script when the element loses focus.
  • onchange - runs a script when the element changes.
  • onfocus - runs a script when the element gets the focus.
  • onreset - runs a script when the form is reset.
  • onselect - runs a script when the element is selected.
  • onsubmit- runs a script when the form is submitted.
