How to reset or clear all web form controls in asp.net

Introduction: In this article today I am going to explain how we can reset or clear all form controls in asp.net code behind.

Description:

HTML Markup:

<fieldset style="width:450px">
    <legend>Reset All controls Example</legend>
        <table>
        <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
        <tr><td>First Name:</td><td>
            <asp:TextBox ID="frstname" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></td></tr>
            <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
         <tr><td>Last Name:</td><td>
             <asp:TextBox ID="lastname" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></td></tr>           
                <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
                   <tr><td>Gender:</td><td>          
                       <asp:CheckBoxList ID="CheckBoxList1" runat="server"
                           RepeatDirection="Horizontal" >
                           <asp:ListItem>Male</asp:ListItem>
                           <asp:ListItem>Female</asp:ListItem>
                       </asp:CheckBoxList>         
        </td></tr>
        <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>   
        <tr><td>Technology:</td><td>         
 
            <asp:RadioButton ID="rblnet" runat="server" Text="Asp.net" GroupName="a"/>
            <asp:RadioButton ID="rblphp"
                runat="server" Text="Php" GroupName="a" />         
        </td></tr>
        <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
         <tr><td>City:</td><td>
             <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlcity" runat="server">
             <asp:ListItem>--Select--</asp:ListItem>
                 <asp:ListItem>Delhi</asp:ListItem>
                 <asp:ListItem>Kolkata</asp:ListItem>
                 <asp:ListItem>Mumbai</asp:ListItem>
             </asp:DropDownList>
         </td></tr>
        <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
        <tr><td>Job Type:</td><td>
            <asp:RadioButtonList ID="rbljobt" runat="server" RepeatDirection="Horizontal">
                <asp:ListItem>Full Time</asp:ListItem>
                <asp:ListItem>Part Time</asp:ListItem>
            </asp:RadioButtonList>
        </td></tr>
            <tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
         <tr><td>I accept the term and condition: </td><td>
             <asp:CheckBox ID="chk" runat="server" /></td></tr>       
              <tr><td></td><td>
                  <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Submit" onclick="Button1_Click" />
                  </td></tr>
        </table>
     </fieldset>

After insert the record to database write the below given code (C#):
   protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ClearControls();
    }
    public void ClearControls()
    {
        foreach (Control cntrl in form1.Controls)
        {
            if (cntrl.GetType() == typeof(TextBox))
            {
                ((TextBox)(cntrl)).Text = "";
            }
         
            else if (cntrl.GetType() == typeof(DropDownList))
            {
                ((DropDownList)(cntrl)).SelectedIndex = 0;
            }
            else if (cntrl.GetType() == typeof(CheckBox))
            {
                ((CheckBox)(cntrl)).Checked = false;
            }
            else if (cntrl.GetType() == typeof(CheckBoxList))
            {
                ((CheckBoxList)(cntrl)).ClearSelection();
            }
            else if (cntrl.GetType() == typeof(RadioButton))
            {
                ((RadioButton)(cntrl)).Checked = false;
            }
            else if (cntrl.GetType() == typeof(RadioButtonList))
            {
                ((RadioButtonList)(cntrl)).ClearSelection();
            }
        }
    }

VB:

Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ClearControls()
    End Sub

    Public Sub ClearControls()
        For Each cntrl As Control In form1.Controls
            If cntrl.[GetType]() = GetType(TextBox) Then
                DirectCast(cntrl, TextBox).Text = ""
            ElseIf cntrl.[GetType]() = GetType(DropDownList) Then
                DirectCast(cntrl, DropDownList).SelectedIndex = 0
            ElseIf cntrl.[GetType]() = GetType(CheckBox) Then
                DirectCast(cntrl, CheckBox).Checked = False
            ElseIf cntrl.[GetType]() = GetType(CheckBoxList) Then
                DirectCast(cntrl, CheckBoxList).ClearSelection()
            ElseIf cntrl.[GetType]() = GetType(RadioButton) Then
                DirectCast(cntrl, RadioButton).Checked = False
            ElseIf cntrl.[GetType]() = GetType(RadioButtonList) Then
                DirectCast(cntrl, RadioButtonList).ClearSelection()
            End If
        Next

    End Sub
