Hi guys,

Is there a way to submit your form directly from the dropdown list, as opposed to having to use a submit button?

I only require one entry in my text field so the multiple selections isnt necessary.

Any help would be greatfully received.

Kind regards

    I'm trying to figure this out too, Matthew. If you have found the answer, could you please post it here or share it with me? Thanks!

    Okay, I figured it out. And as usual, I figured it out only after polluting the Interwebs with my question ;-)

    resultClick:function(data) { console.log(; $("input[type=search]").val(; $(this).submit(); }
