it's usually bad practice including a reset button in your forms.
Some reasons for this are outlined in various other questions:
- Submit and Reset button, what's the best order?
- Is a cancel button necessary in a web form?
- Is a cancel button really needed in a form in a page?
However, my form is a type of calculator where users have various input boxes and dropdown menus to choose from to influence the calculation (13 in total).
The user's choices are remembered and displayed in the form elements after submitting as users need to know what they entered to make sense of their calculation.
Users could possibly want to use it n times so as it remembers everything they would have to delete and re-enter their desired input each time.
In this case, where the form is a calculator, does it make sense to include a reset button?
from a logical point of view, it sure does, but does it still go against UX best practices?
