No need to use JavaScript. You can use <html:reset />

looks good. However, the selections can't be changed. They are defined by struts code like <logic:equal> <option value=** selected > <logic:equal> <logic:notequal> <option value=** > </logic:notEqual>.

Any other ideas? Or somehow similar examples? Thanks.

If that is not possible then you have to use JavaScript.

Can you try to add the <html:button> that has the onClick attribute to execute some JavaScript? Because I am not using Struts at the moment.

Just a thing that I normally do. I am not sure whether it works or not.

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">    
    function resetForm() {
         alert('coming here');
         // resetting here but not sure how to get the
        document.getElementById("test").value = '';

<%-- name may be useful here --%>
<html:text property="test" size="10" name="test" />
<html:button property="submit" value="Submit" onclick="return resetForm();" />

suprapto's code should help. Although , if you want to reset a few selected fields without reseting the entire page, you can do that by getting the value of each field from the form-bean and reseting them in javascript.
