How can I add a custom button to reset the inital data loaded in the From?

Solution

Configure a buttonsTemplate and add the html for the reset button. On click of the custom reset button, get a reference to the Form. Use the setOptions method to set the formData of the Form to the initial data.

    <form id="myForm"></form>

    <script>
      function custom(){     
        var form = $("#myForm").data('kendoForm');
        var initial = form.options.formData;
        form.setOptions({
          formData: {
            ID: initial.ID,
            Name: initial.Name,
            Address: initial.Address
          } 
        });
      }

      $(document).ready(function(){        
        $("#myForm").kendoForm({
          formData: {
            ID: 1,
            Name: "Ivan",
            Address: "Sofia"
          },
          buttonsTemplate:'<div class="k-form-buttons">'+
          '<button class="k-button k-primary k-form-submit" type="submit">Submit</button>'+
          '<button class="k-button k-form-clear">Clear</button>'+
          '<button id="btn" onclick="custom()" class="k-button">Custom Reset button</button>'+
          '</div>',
          submit: function(e) {
            e.preventDefault();
          }          
        });
      })
    </script>
