So I know the cool old fasioned way of getting to a select element options label:

document.getElementById('modelId').options[document.getElementById('modelId').options.selectedIndex].text

My first question is does JQuery have a built in util function to do this?
My second question is, if not, I've started my own but I can't seem to figure out how to return the value from the custom function:



And then doing something like:

jQuery('#someSelectElement').getSelectedLabel()

is returning 'undefined'.

Thanks for any help.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
