Hi

I have a form with several textbox and submit buttons. The text will be input to DB after pressing the submit button. However, the text is left in the textbox after pressing the submit button.

I want to clear the text in the textbox everytime the submit button was clicked.

How can I do that? with js?

Well you can use server-side and client-side both.

If you want to clear the text from server-side add something like
textbox.text = "" 

If you want to clear the text using client-side java script add an event handler to onClientClick event, that goes through all the textboxes and clear their values.

<asp:Button ID="Button1" onClientClick="clearText()" runat="server" Text="Button" />
           <script type="text/javascript">
           function clearText(){
           document.getElementById('text1').value = '';
           }
          </script>
