    clear text field on submit

    hi, i have a chatbox that shows its result within an iframe, but the text field and the submit buttons are outside this iframe, so when i submit my form, its target is inside the iframe, so my text field wont clear itself. how to do that?

    use javascript.

    Code:
    onClick="document.getElementById('ChatField').value = '';"

    I would need to test it to know for sure, but it should submit the data before clearing.

    otherwise use ajax to submit the query.
