How to envoke the BackSpace event in Javascript

I have a texbox in my asp page. When the user enter some non-numerical value, it will pop up a message,

"Please Enter only Numbers".  Along with this message, I want to delete the non-numerical character entered by the user. In VB I use Sendkeys + {BACKSPACE}. When I give this command, it sends a backspace .

I want a similar option in Javascript. Any idea???

No. However you can cancel the event or chop the field to value.length-1

Hey!

Well you probably have some function that checks the data given and then shout out some alert message???

In this case you can do something like this:

<script language="javascript">
function alert(){
alert('Enter the real stuff');
resetData();
}

function resetData(){
document.myinput.reset();
}
</script>

where the input you want clear must have the name you specified in document.myinput.reset();
(in this case you would have <input name="myinput">

Hope this is what you needed...

@Ljubiccica - welcome to EE.
A few things:

There is no reset on field level...
Also you cannot access a field via document.fieldName
Please do not confuse people...

That is ok, however the code you proposed is not doing anything on any browsers regardless of what he wanted...
