MVC2 Use selected item from dropdown list to filter listview

I have a dropdown list below and want to pass the ID of  whatever is selected in the dropdown to a controller action that filtered a list of items using the ID.

An example would be good please.


<%= Html.DropDownList("ItemList", Model.ItemList)%>

//controller

Open in new window
