Hi! I started learning Liferay a couple of days ago, I'm developing a new portlet for a portal and a I have a Form in which I need a "Clear" button that resets all the fields of the form to their default values.
This is my form at the moment, the button "Clean" would call the action to reset the rest of the fields.

<aui:form action="<%= generateValues %>" method="post">

<aui:select name="depts" label="Depts."> ....... </aui:select>

<aui:select name="type" label="Type"> ....... </aui:select>

<aui:input label="pattern" name="padron" type="text"/>
<br/>

<aui:button type="submit" value="View information" />
<aui:button type="cancel" value="Clean" />
<br/>
</aui:form>


What's the best way of making this?

Thanks!

Create a javascript to initialize settings and have button call this method onClick().

<aui:button onClick="<%= initForm() %>" type="cancel" value="Clean" />

What about just reloading the page? When the form is displayed it would contain whatever settings/values are present at that time. This would avoid the need to have to cache the info, and would also show any updates that another may have performed between the form display and a user clicking cancel/clean.

This is how I finnaly solved this:

<aui:button type="cancel" value="Limpiar" onclick="this.form.reset()" />

Not sure if it's the best solution but it worked emoticon

Thanks!

Your solution seems to be better than mine. Will use it the next time. :-)

Try this,

<aui:button type="reset" value="clear"/>
