    Hello Geodesyxyz,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to add a reset button in your form which will clear all your form field. Is that correct?

    You need to just select the "Submit" button of your form and then click on the "Rest Button" from the toolbar above. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Thank you, I will try this. I liked the forms provided in the site! I already embedded several of them in my web site and tried export to dropbox. Just couple of hour ago the export worked and now the data does not go to dropbox (it's uptodate).

    Hello!

    According to the "clear" button - I added it in the form.

    But is it possible (how) to change it into red colour and keep "send" button green? I see only properties for the submit button.

    Thanks!

    Hello Geodesyxyz,

    Please inject the following custom css code in your form to change the "clear" button background color to red and font to white:

    button#input_reset_1 {

    color: white;

    text-shadow: 0px 0px 0px white;

    border: 1px solid red !important;

    -moz-box-shadow: inset 0px 1px 0px 0px white;

    -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0px 1px 0px 0px white;

    box-shadow: inset 0px 1px 0px 0px red;

    background: red;

    background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, red 0%, #4ea20a 100%);

    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,red), color-stop(100%,#A20A0A));

    background: linear-gradient(top, red 0%, red 100%);

    }

    The following guide should help you on how to add the custom css code in your form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    Thank you!

    Thanks! For one in the forms it worked!

    I will check what's happening with the others as something with the colour or the label went wrong.

    Hi,

    In my colleagues name, you are welcome.

    Please tell us the other jotforms where the issue happened with the code my colleague has provided you with and we would be happy to check it out.

    His code is correct and will work properly, but if you have some submit button with a theme applied, the theme could set parts of its own code instead.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hello! I don't now what was wrong but now after changing the theme it's working.

    I have this questions - how to change the name "clear form" to "изчисти" for instance? Thank you!

     

    P.S. This form http://form.jotformeu.com/form/43053831101339 has a clear button, but after "clearing" the text box still has content inside. Would you please check this?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I don't now what was wrong but now after changing the theme it's working.

    As mentioned above in my reply, the CSS code created by my colleague Ashwin was made for a specific style, so changing the buttons to that theme will make it work. For other themes it would require additional CSS code to be added.

    I have moved your question in regards to translations here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/468910 We will be replying back to you on that on that thread.

    I have also moved your question regarding the clear button here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/468911

    Best Regards,
    Ben
