Select/drop-down menu

The value of the selected element will be passed as a form parameter:

<%= form_start_tag :url=>{:controller=>'some_controller',
:action=>'some_action'} %>
<select name="my_select_box">
  <option value="1">First Option</option>
  <option value="2">Second Option</option>
</select>
<%= form_end_tag %>

and

class Somecontroller
  def some_action
    value = params[:my_select_box]
  end
end

Cheers,
Max
