Is there a way to code "Restore Defaults" button into a plugin options page?

I'm writing a plugin right now that has sets up some default values on activation (via register_activation_hook), and I'd like to give users the option to restore those defaults again with a click. Possible?

Nevermind, answered my own question:


Used that to update all the text and drop downs. Couldn't get it to work with my checkboxes, but a few other lines of jQuery took care of those. I like the idea of just auto filling the form with the defaults, rather than submitting it right away.
