Hi ,

I am trying to accomplish clearing the input fields in jsf page.I have a method to be called on clicking the reset button. Here is my code


<div class="formControls"><h:commandButton
value="Search" id="btnSubmit1"
</h:commandButton> <h:commandButton type="button" value="Clear" id="btnReset"
action="#{searchSubscriberBean.resetme}" styleClass="primary"

in my backing bean i have a method resetme().But it looks this method is not being called at all,Since i haven't seen the sys out message aftre clicking the button.

System.out.println("reset>>>>>>>>>>>. ");
FacesContext context = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
Application application = context.getApplication();
ViewHandler viewHandler = application.getViewHandler();
UIViewRoot viewRoot = viewHandler.createView(context, context

Any ideas , where iam doing wrong?

It's because you are using type="button". If you use type="submit" it will actually submit. When you use type="button" you need to supply a JavaScript onClick event handler to make it actually do anything.

Thank you very much for the reply.
