SYMPTOMS

When you click the Reset button on a search results page, nothing happens.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs when you enter search criteria, click Search on the form, and then click Reset on the results page. This behavior does not occur on the search form.

The Search component sets the default value for the search results page to the query text. Therefore, when you click Reset, the query text remains in the text box on the search results page. This functionality was implemented to inform you about your query.

NOTE: When you use the Search component, you cannot set the default value that appears in the text box.

When you create an HTML page, you can specify default values for form fields. Clicking Reset on a form field resets the form fields to their default values. When you load a form for the first time, the search field is blank. If you type some text in the search field and then click Reset, the search field no longer contains your search text (it is blank). When you type text in the search field and then click Search, the search results page contains the query string. In other words, when the page is loaded, it contains the query string as the default value for the form field. Clicking Reset does not delete the search string from the search results page.
