jQuery > How to pass the value of a select list to an onclick handler?

I have a button element below in which I need to make the “template” variable dynamic to match the val() property of the currently selected item in the “template” select menu. How can I do this?

<select id="template">..select options</select>

onclick="window.open('<?php echo $  thePath ?>/test.php?template=?????', 'popup');
return false;">
click me

I know I can grab the selected option in jQuery with $ (‘#template :selected’).val();

How can I pass this to the onclick handler?
