Not sure if it applies for your case, but with Scriptaculous you can
have something like:

html submitButton
    onClick: (html request "updater if you want a request plus an update
             triggerForm: 'yourFormId'  "triggerFormElement if you
only want a field... except multiples choices)
             callback: [:value | ...])
    with: 'name'

if updater, you have a block with a renderer

...onClick: (html updater
				id: 'anidToBerendered';
                                triggerFormElement: 'anId';
				callback: [ :render | self renderThisBlock]
