Enable/Disable Reset Button

Posted on 2001-07-07
Last Modified: 2008-03-06
Greetings all,

What I wish to do is enable the reset button if the user has made any changes to any field on the form. But I do not wish to hard code by hand every field within the form with a onChange event listener. What I ideally would like is a script that on page load would set this property for all fields.

Thanx in advance,

function checkreset(obj)
      return true
   return false;

<input type=text onChange="this.form.resetbutton.disabled=false">

<input type=reset onClick="return checkreset(this)"

Question -- if they aren't supposed to change it, why have it as a form field? Why not just display it?

If I see things in a form field, I assume it's because it's available for editing.

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the
moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments
that would help me to make a recommendation.
   In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear
   to me that it has value as a PAQ.  Silence = you don't care
