How to clear out form field info on page load

0EM50000000T3yW.png

Hi I have created a landing page we are going to use at PyCon this year for people to create accounts for our product.  We are going to have this on a Ipad at our booth and pass it to people who are interested in signing up.  I was looking for a way to have no prefil text inside the form fields.  I disabled pre-fill inside the form editor and still there are forms that get preloaded with text of the last form submit.  I try using some javascript to clear out the forms but have had not luck.  The form is on a landing page that is being iframed and displayed on another landing page.  Has anyone else run into an issue similar to this and have a solution they would willing to share?  Thanks!

By the way, make sure you disable pre-fill on every field in your form! I have a hunch that is what your issue could be.

Sounds like you've already seen forms docs:
http://developers.marketo.com/documentation/websites/forms-2-0/

In the onSuccess callback add one line of JS:
location.reload(true);

If your form has pre-fill disabled, then refreshing the page should make it work the way you want.

Annnnd.....I am an idiot.  Did not turn off pre-fill on all the fields, works like a charm now.  Thanks guys

@Justin C One last thing: I feel this should be in the onSuccess rather than the onSubmit to make sure it can't abort the async form post.

Sanford is correct, onSuccess() in the right way to do this.
