jQuery - selection and checkbox element events...

Hey guys, I'm trying to find out how I can show additional content when a certain html checkbox is ticked and when a select element has been selected. I want to show additional content such as a reset button and make another select box visible.

Can I do this with jQuery if so does anyone know of any examples been browsing for a while and can't find a solution :(

Yes you can do this with jQuery.

<input type="checkbox" id="my-checkbox" />
<select id="my-select">...</select>
var toggleShow = function () {
    var $checkbox = $('#my-checkbox');
    var $select = $('#my-select');

    if ($checkbox.is(':checked') && $select.val() === "value you want") {

You would then need to decide when you want to check, on select box change perhaps?

$('#my-select').on('change', function () {
