Enable/Disable Reset Button

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,

RBW

<script>
function checkreset(obj)
{
   if(this.disabled==true||this.disabled==false)
   {
      this.disabled=true;
      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.

   In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear
