I have a search embedded in the before content portion of a view.  The search works fine; however, is there a simple way to give users a button/link to clear the search criteria and do another search without leaving that view? Thank you.

My suggestion is to have a clear button next to the search button and use jQuery to clear all the fields you want cleared. A really efficient way to do that is to makeup a class name, e.g., clear_search and apply that to all the fields you want cleared and then in the jQuery code you can clear the value to all the fields with that class.
