    Default JavaScript - Pass selected drop down list value to method

    This may be a simple thing, but I am trying to capture the selected value from a drop down list on an JSP page and use the selected value as an argument to a method. I am able to use the onchange event in the select tag to call a java script function and capture the value but I am not sure how to send the value to the method. I think there is a way to do this via an ajax based call but I am not sure how to accomplish this. To be clear this code runs but I don't know how to pass the value to a method on the JSP page. Here is a sample of the test code I am using. Thank you.

    <script>
    function getSelected()
    {
    var selectedSource = document.getElementById("myselect").value;
    console.log(selectedSource);
    }
    </script>

    <select name="myselect" id="myselect" onchange="getSelected();">
    <option value="1">One</option>
    <option value="2">Two</option>
    <option value="3">Three</option>
    <option value="4">Four</option>
    </select>

    Javascript is not the same as java. Look for a javascript forum for your questions.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
