Hi Vincent,

You'll have better support for this in XForms 1.1 because it will have an 
ability to clone a node
from anywhere to anywhere.  So you could put your prototypical data for 
when a case is first
started into some separate instance data, and you could then reset a case 
by cloning in the 
prototype then deleting the current data.

For XForms 1.0, you could achieve the same effect if you specially 
organized your data so that
the real data and the prototype elements were children of a common parent. 
 You could then
use insert and delete actions to achieve the same effect.  But it's more 
cumbersome and it
imposes a particular data structure on you...

how to reset just a part of an model


Considering a multi-screens form, each screen 'implemented' by a 
and proposing a 'reset' trigger to reset the data concerned in the case 
(and only in the case).

Do you know how to do the reset of the part of the model (i.e. a nodeset 
of an instance) 
concerned, and only this part. (so without using xforms:reset) ?
