Rails Clear Textarea

Using Rails 4.  I have a text_area_tag with submit_tag to do a query.  I need to add a button to  clear out the textarea and resubmit the form (using form_tag)

Layout looks like this:
Textarea
Query Button 1   Clear Button

Code looks like this:
form_tag ....
    text_area_tag
    submit_tag  "Query Button"
end form tag

Any ideas?  Ajax was suggested.

Yif you're ok with waiting for a reply from the server, you can create a js.erb file that will be executed after the request. inferring from the form action, create a file called action_save.js.erb in the views folder and add:

$('#text_area_tag').val('');

Open in new window
