I want to pass the whole dropdown menu as a parameter (not just its value).

Greetings dshrenik,

Gurvinder372 is correct; "this" is the best way to send an object to a function. If you are familiar with jQuery, you can always call the form through an ID and query its elements: http://jsfiddle.net/YXagh/1/

Best regards,
