Is there a way where in I can trigger remote action when an user choose
one of the options in the dropdown of "select" method?

Mebbe something like on_change but instead of triggering JS action,
remote action is what i am looking at.

Please suggest

Thanks Fred.
I used something like this:
{:onchange => 'window.location=this.value;'}
the value of the select option can be made text link. So it worked like
a charm for me to load a new page on selecting an option.
