Why dont you create some Reset() procedure that will set all controls to default values?

Try this:
<asp:Button Text="Reset Form" id="btnReset" runat="server" />


In your code behind page write this:

Private Sub btnReset_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnReset.Click
Me.Server.Transfer("myPage.aspx")
End Sub

Other than this:

    Dim bm As New BillMaster
    bm.Show()
    Me.Close()

There isn't any other way to do it...

Even if it's possibl,e is not nice to do it because it takes more time then a refresh (it as to dispose the form and load it) and  it's not nice to the user (that see the flash closing and openning).

Dim bm As New BillMaster
        Me.Close()
        bm.ShowDialog()

If its a modal doalog, then yes, you could do it like that, altough It is not the best way,, since you dont know how many times would you refresh it. So you would need to do something like this


bool refresh = true;

while (refresh)
{
    BillMaster frm = new BillMaster();
    frm.ShowDialog();

    refresh = frm.ReloadForm;
}

Where ReloadForm is the public property of BillMaster, and which you would set to true/false, depending weather you want to reload form after you close it.


But showing form as modal is often not very proffesional, and leaves user with less possibilities, and you should think weather you should make it less professional, in order to make your coding easier.

I assume ShowDialog() is to keep the application from closing?

If so, click on Project --> Properties, then change the "Shutdown Mode" dropdown to "When last form closes".

Then you can it like I showed before:

    Dim bm As New BillMaster
    bm.Show()
    Me.Close()

...and the application will NOT close on you.  =)
