javascript clear textarea


The text in any text area can be deleted or erased using Javascript. In the example below, we have created a text area  element containing some text. We have also created a button named "Clear TextArea" which calls clearTextArea() method defined in <script> </script>. It clears the value of the text area.


<title>javascript focus input</title>
<script type="text/javascript">

function clearTextArea() {

<form name="textform">
<textarea name="textarea">
This text will be removed if you click on 'Clear TextArea' button.</textarea>

<input type="button" id="name" onClick="clearTextArea();" value="Clear TextArea" /><br>


The above code will display the page like below:

Click on 'Clear TextArea' button, you will see that the text is not present in the text area.
