Page Validation and Submit problems ??

P: n/a
Hi,

I am creating a simple .aspx page to add some fields with validation.

I have used different .NET validations like REquiredFieldValidator,
RegularExpressionValidator and showed the summary in the bulleted list
on top. I have 3 text boxes, and two RadioButtonList. and 3 buttons.
One for Submit, Reset and Exit.

If submit is pressed page should be validated and submit (insert into
DB) , Reset- page shoule be re-loaded, Exit - go to next page.

I have tried many options and i don't know which way is the best one.

a) when i submit the page .. all validatations are working perfect,
but how should i reset the page ? (again it is doing all the
validations ). I have used javascript too but for that i remove <%@
Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false"
Codebehind="AddUsers.aspx.vb"%> then only it works. But i have to use
code behind and if remove this line for sake of JS i cannot use code
behind.

b) then i thought of using my own validations in function and for that
i believe if i use <asp:textbox and on click if of submit if i write
txtFullName.value does not work .. again i need to change every tag to
input type .. is this the only way.

Please suggest me the best way.

Code I am using is as follows :-
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false"
Codebehind="AddUsers.aspx.vb"%>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<script language="VB" runat="server">
Sub SubmitBtn_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
Response.write ("Arun Submit")
End Sub

Sub ResetBtn_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
Response.write ("Arun Reset")

End Sub

</script>
