I have a master page, content page and a user control.
1. In the user control, i have a button that I call javascript on usercontrol to clear some textfields.

2. In content page, I have a label that I also want to clear when the user-control button is clicked.

Anyway I can access this label in usercontrol, using javascript? this is what I have now.

In user control

<script type="text/javascript">
    function clrCtrl() {
        document.getElementById("<%= search_category_city.ClientID %>").value = "";

 <asp:Button  ID="btnClear" Text="Clear" runat="server" OnClientClick="clrCtrl();return false;"  />

Open in new window

In Content page
<asp:Label runat="server" ID="lblMsgFax" />

Open in new window
