Hi,

YOu can use the apex:selectList and apex:selectOptions to acheive the stated requirement where you can select an option from a drop down and pass the selected value to a method in a controller :

the below link has sample code snippet which will give you an idea as to how to begin with :

kabukabu
public pagereference refreshData() {
   //code to load data

     return null;
    }
on VF Page I am writing

<!-- apex:pageBlockSection >
                <apex:inputField value="{!Lead.Status}" id="vehstate">
                 <apex:actionSupport event="onchange"  action="{!refreshData}"  rerender="myopties"/>
                 </apex:inputField>
            </apex:pageBlockSection-->

This does not work I get the dropdown but it does not help
