Hi Cees,

I strongly recommend you to use XMLHttpRequest indirectly through 
prototype.js library, see also a nice 
tutorial here:

Most useful Prototype functions are: Ajax.Request and Ajax.Updater.

With Ajax.Updater you can send a form to server, get new form back and 
update/replace old form element.

I hope this help you a bit ..
