I created 4 <select> elements using a jQuery in my html page. Once they are generated I want to attach a .change event to each select to call yet another ajax function. it does not work. Why?

I presume it is because the elements (select) don't exist in the html?

.live()

try something like this:

$('#myID').live('change',function() {
  alert('change event for dynamic component');
});

after creating a new element with id=myID
