Reset a Web Page to initial state via Button

Have a web page with 30+ controls of most types(textboxes, dropdown lists, checkboxes...)

User presses a SAVE button (System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button)

From the .net codebehind want to perform various tasks (already written) and then reload / reinitialize the page as if just loaded for the first time.  The actual URL does have some values set ie.  page.aspx?id=1&name=test

Programming in VB.net

Would think this would be easy but have found no simple solution yet...

Set the viewstate(s) to 'False'. That should do the trick.

Looking for a modular solution that will work on any web form w/o having to hardcode each control...

Goal is the user hits the SAVE button (record is saved) then form is cleared and user can fill out again and press the SAVE button again...  This process should be repeatable over and over...

Hmm, how about adding some javascript to reset all values:

<script language="javascript">
  function window.onload()
    { document.forms(0).reset(); }
</script>

D'Mzz!

Dim sc As String = "<script language='javascript'> function window.onload() { document.forms(0).reset(); } </script>"

RegisterStartupScript("a", sc)

Does not work :(....

testn- Like the approach, however looking for a generic solution and the arguments passed on the command line can/will change.  Soo close :)...

testn- The following code is a generic solution based on your approach:

Response.Redirect(Request.Url.AbsoluteUri, False)

Awarding you the points...  Thank you :)...
