Hi Rails Users,

I have a select list that I'd like to use to update a div onchange.

Right now I just have the div appear, but not update:

<%= select_tag( "profiles_select", option_tags = @profiles,
                 { :onchange => "new Effect.Appear('the_profile',
                                                  { duration: 0.5 } );"
               } )
     %>

@profiles is a list of option tags something like:

<option value=1>Profile 1</option><option value=2>Profile 2</option> etc

I'd like to do a new AJAX request and make the div appear onchange of
the select
tag using the option value.  Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks,
--Dean
