<form id="myForm" class="form-vertical">
<div class="form-group">
<textarea id="defaultRTE" name="defaultRTE" required maxlength="100" minlength="20" data-msg-containerid="dateError">      </textarea>
<div id="dateError" style="padding-top: 10px"></div>
</div>
<div style="text-align: center">
<button id="validateSubmit" class="samplebtn e-control e-btn" type="submit" data-ripple="true">Submit</button>
<button id="resetbtn" class="samplebtn e-control e-btn" type="reset" data-ripple="true">Reset</button>
