You have couple of ways to do this either with jquery OR from code behind page
1) Using code behind
  Write function clear_data () which will clear the values and call this function on button click
2) Jquery
      // .... clear textbox values

ok. if i were to do it in the code behind, i tried setting txtTextBox1 = string.empty but control retains the value.
