Reset Tag (Form Tag) Example


In this section, we are going to describe the reset tag. The reset tag is a UI tag that  is used with the form tag to provide form resetting.
It renders a reset button.
The reset can have two different types of rendering:

  • input: renders as html <input type="reset"...>
  • button: renders as html <button type="reset"...>

The button type has advantages as it adds  the possibility to separate the submitted value from the text shown on the button face.

Add the following code snippet into the struts.xml file.

<action name="resetTag">

Create a jsp using the tag <s:reset>. It renders a reset button which provides the form resetting.


<%taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %>
  <title>Reset Tag Example!</title> 
 <link href="<s:url value="/css/main.css"/>" rel="stylesheet"
  <h1><span style="background-color: #FFFFcc">Reset Tag Example!</span></h1>
  <s:textfield name="username" label="User Name" size="15" maxlength="10" />
  <s:password name="password" label="Password" size="15" maxlength="10" />
  <s:reset value="Reset" />

Output of the resetTag.jsp:
