I have  dropdownchecklist widget defined:
      $("#s1").dropdownchecklist({ width: 50});

on my <select> :
 <select id="s1" name = "seldc" onChange="this.form.submit()" >               
           {HTML_options options = $cdoptions  selected = $selcd}            

(I am using Smarty templates)

Now how to intercept the selections invoke the main php script with new searching criteria?
