I am looking for the correct way to run more than 1 $.get() event from a single change event. The code I have posted only returns the first call to loadboxDstrsubcat.php?dstrdept.

I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. I know there is the .when option, but I am still quite green to ajax so any help would be mist welcome. Thanks

$(function() {

$("#dstr_dept").chosen({
      width: "260px",
      placeholder_text_single: "Select Some Options"
    }).change(function() {

    $(this).after('<div id="loader"><imgages src="img/loading.gif" alt="loading files" /></div>');
    $.get('loadboxDstrsubcat.php?dstrdept=' + $(this).val(), function(data) {
      $("#box_dstr").html(data);
      $('#loader').slideUp(200, function() {
        $(this).remove();
        $("#box_dstr").trigger("chosen:updated");
      });
    });
      $(this).after('<div id="loader"><imgages src="img/loading.gif" alt="loading files" /></div>');
      $.get('loadboxAdrDstrsubcat.php?dstraddr=' + $(this).val(), function(data) {
      $("#dstr_address").html(data);
      $('#loader').slideUp(200, function() {
        $(this).remove();
        $("#dstr_address").trigger("chosen:updated");
      });
    });
  });
});

Test this :
$(function() {
	$("#dstr_dept").chosen({
		placeholder_text_single: "Select Some Options"
	}).change(function() {
		$.ajaxSetup({async:"false"});
		alert("first GET"); // remove me once you got it
		$(this).after('<div id="loader"><imgages src="img/loading.gif" alt="loading files" /></div>');
		$.get('loadboxDstrsubcat.php?dstrdept=' + $(this).val(), function(data) {
			$("#box_dstr").html(data);
			$('#loader').slideUp(200, function() {
				$(this).remove();
				$("#box_dstr").trigger("chosen:updated");
			});
		});
		alert("second GET"); // remove me once you got it
		$(this).after('<div id="loader"><imgages src="img/loading.gif" alt="loading files" /></div>');
		$.get('loadboxAdrDstrsubcat.php?dstraddr=' + $(this).val(), function(data) {
			$("#dstr_address").html(data);
			$('#loader').slideUp(200, function() {
				$(this).remove();
				$("#dstr_address").trigger("chosen:updated");
			});
		});
		alert("happy end"); // remove me once you got it
	});
});

Not sure if this will work, but you can try something like the following for a asynchronous result(just pseudo code here):
$.when(
  $.get('your stuff here', function() {
	//your stuff here
  });
).then(
  $.when(
	  $.get('your stuff here', function() {
		//your stuff here
	  });
  ).then(
    //and so forth
  );
);

If this is a bit nasty, you can try the following - also asynchronous:
$.get( "example1.php", function() {
  alert( "success1" );
}).done(function() {
    $.get( "example2.php", function() {
		alert( "success2" );
	}).done(function() {
		//and so forth
	});
});

Haven't tested these actually, just guessing :)

Works a treat thanks. Only question I have is, is it ok to have the loader named the way it is? ie, same id? thx
