Is it possible to clear a form an reset (reload) the page with one button?

I've got a form on a page where the user types something in and then a result is returned and displayed on the page. Is it possible for me to have a button that will both, clear the search results and the form simultaneously?

I know that you can use the

<input type="reset" value="Reset"/>
button on the form to reset the form and also use the following code, to reload the page.

<input type="button" value="Clear Results" onClick="window.location.reload()">

Is it possible to have the button do both things i.e. clear the search results and reset the form? Can it be done using JavaScript, if so how?

If you want the functionality of both of the snippets you posted, you can simply combine them.

<input type="reset" value="Reset" onClick="window.location.reload()">

(There, now you can accept my answer XD)
