Combo Box event listener

I have this problem
I have a combobox going to a php form, everything submits correctly but the state never changes it always staying at the first state of the combo box  AL in my php email
with the code of
var type = combo.selectedItem.label;
form = new LoadVars();

I knew that the issue was probably  an event Listener, not seeing the change of the combo box.
so i tried
var cbListener = new Object();
cbListener.change = function(evt) {
    var state = evt.target.selectedIndex;  
form = new LoadVars();

But now i get
cbListener: [object Object], returned in the php email

Any help would be awesome.

I'm assuming you mean that if say item2 is selected it must show 2 selected not the default first one?

i think in your change method you just need to set it

combo..selectedIndex = evt.target.selectedIndex;
trace(evt.target.selectedIndex);//check this is returning the right thing
