    Hi,

    I'm asking about codes from this link http://www.jotform.com/help/69-How-to-Change-Clear-Text-on-Clear-Button-Deprecated-

    If you see point No. 3, it says  3) "Put this line below your form code"


    But I didn't see the codes, could you send me the codes? 

    Thanks.

    I am sorry but this guide is deprecated.

    Do you want to change the text of your form's "Clear Form" button? You can simply download your form's source code and change it manually.

    Here is the sample code which you can find and change it on your source code:

     <button id="input_reset_2" type="reset" class="form-submit-reset">

                  Clear Form >>> This text need to be changed.

      </button>

    Let us know if you meant to ask something else.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    Thanks Sidarth, that is exactly what am trying to do, changing the Clear Form Label text to something else.

    You said to download the from and change it manually, but I want to embed this form on my website, is it possible to  upload the form back to jotform after I've made changes?

    The changes you made in your form will reflect the changes you made in your website where you have embedded the form. If you use a form source coude, you can customize the form but would not affect the form that is found on Jotform server.  This means you cannot upload the changes you made in your form source code in Jotform server but can upload the changes you made in Jotform to your server.

    If you have any other questions, please contact us again.

    Hi,

    Another workaround that you might like to try into your form is by using Free Text(HTML) field and use this html codes:

    <input type="submit" value="Submit" />

    <input type="reset" value="CLEAR NOW" />

    For more information, please take a look at this video: http://www.screencast.com/t/XWob2Fmc
    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
    Thank you!

    @pplnbahrain

    Request you to add this code in your Free Text (HTML):

    <input type="submit" value="Submit" class="form-submit-button"/>

    <input type="reset" value="CLEAR NOW" class="form-submit-button" />

    This will change the appearance of your buttons.

    Thanks,
