Dashboards & Visualizations

How do you clear the token values in HTML dashboards?

I've got a dashboard that is POSTing stuff to a kv store. It currently clears the input forms once I hit submit, but the actual values seem to still be held in the tokens. For instance, I can hit submit five times in a row, even though the input forms have been cleared, but it will post the same values five times in a row instead one set of values and four blanks.

So yeah, how do I clear these token values?

Here is my html:

var submit = new SubmitButton({
    id: 'submit',
    el: $('#search_btn'),
    text: 'Add to kv store'
}, {tokens: true}).render();

submit.on("submit", function() {
    submitTokens();

    // Below this point is from custom dashboard tutorial
    // When the Submit button is clicked, get all the form fields by accessing token values from their Label field
    var tokens = mvc.Components.get("default");
    var form_ticket = tokens.get("form.ticket");
    var form_type = tokens.get("form.type");
    var form_value = tokens.get("form.value");

    // Create a dictionary to store the field names and values
    var record = { 
        "ticket": form_ticket, 
        "type": form_type, 
        "value": form_value
    }; 

    // Use the request method to send a REST POST request
    // to the storage/collections/data/{collection}/ endpoint
    service.request(
        "storage/collections/data/mykvstore/",
        "POST",
        null,
        null,
        JSON.stringify(record),
        {"Content-Type": "application/json"},
        null)
            .done(function() { 
                 // Run the search again to update the table
                search1.startSearch();

                // Clear the form fields 
                $("#formaddtokvstore input[type=text]").val(""); 
            });
});

To me it looks like it should be re .getting the variables each time which should be blank, but this is not what is happening. Should I just set my variables to empty at the end?

Don't know why I forgot this is js. I just reset the tokens at the bottom of the code like this:

tokens.set("for.ticket", "");
tokens.set("form.type", "");
tokens.set("form.value", "");
