Answer by Starx

This is how you should do it.

   <select name="dropdown" onchange="$('#pb1').progressBar(this.value);">
    <option name="radOne" value="5" selected>5</option>
    <option name="radOne" value="60">60</option>
    <option name="radOne" value="100">100</option>

Even like show, the practice of inline event handlers is not encouraged. Better approach is

document.getElementByid("selectboxid").onchange = function() {

But, since you are already using jQuery

$("#selectboxId").change(function() {
