The onreset property of the GlobalEventHandlers mixin is an EventHandler that processes reset events.

The reset event fires when the user clicks a reset button in a form (<input type="reset">).


target.onreset = functionRef;


functionRef is a function name or a function expression. The function receives an Event object as its sole argument.


This example logs the current Event.timeStamp whenever you reset the form.


<form id="form">
  <label>Test field: <input type="text"></label>
  <button type="reset">Reset form</button>
<p id="log"></p>


function logReset(event) {
  log.textContent = `Form reset! Time stamp: ${event.timeStamp}`;

const form = document.getElementById('form');
const log = document.getElementById('log');
form.onreset = logReset;
