<form name="type"><label >type:</label>
<select name="variant" data-role="slider">
<option value="simple" onchange="trigger()">simple</option>
<option value="complex" onchange="trigger()">complex</option>
</select>
</form>

Normally f.e. with radiobuttons, it is possible to make them trigger a subroutine.

How to achieve that with a slider?

I have tried all the possibilities (although onchance seems the right one), but to no avail.

Pls help.

I am guessing you are referring to a slider created with jquery mobile? If so , you should try to be more specific in the future.

I am not familiar with jquery mobile but this article shows you how to do it : http://www.jonnyreeves.co.uk/2012/listening-for-slide-start-and-slide-stop-events-from-jquery-mobile-1-1-sliders/

Thanks, you are right, i originated from jquery. this is where i am coming from, at least.

i am a little concerned with compatibility issues across various platforms, though, so i thought about something like this

<form name="type"><label >type:</label>
<select name="variant">
<option value="simple" onchange="trigger()">simple</option>
<option value="complex" onchange="trigger()">complex</option>
</select>
</form>

that's no longer jquery, is it?

Is this function of triggering unimplemented in html5 yet? With other menu elements it works okay.
