Reset drop down menu values RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using SharePoint 2007 Enterprise Edition.

    I have a number of drop down menus configured to filter a set of search results.

    I want to allow users to press a button marked Clear to remove the filter options they have selected and reset each drop down to All.

    I have decided to use a script to do this that is acvtivated when the user clicks the Clear button. But it is not working, I am using the following script:

    <script type="text/javascript">

         function ApplyClear(event)





    With no joy. Can any one point me in the right direction with this?


    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi EmmaCat,

    If you want reset the all dropdownlist , you can iterate your all dropdownlist on your page, then reset it’s selectindex attribute.

    You can refer to the following jQuery code.



      $(document).ready(function() {

                $('#myButton').click(function() {

                $("select").each(function() {    

                    //do something here

                        $(this)[0].selectedIndex = 0;
