dynamic add-to dropdown

I have several tables where, particularly in the beginning, users may not find the correct LABEL in a dataset and need to add it. These dropdowns are part of a larger form.

In Developer Toolbox we had a little server behavior we'd apply to a predefined dropdown generated from a RS that would allow a user to type and add an item to the dropdown list and then reload the list for selection and insert/update.

I'm thinking I could do something with WA triggers, but I can't find a way to call them if I've used a simple DA Wizard form. Am I just missing the insert trigger? The understanding triggers pdf doesn't address how to access them independent of a larger tool, like eCart.

Should I just move on to JQuery instead and save some time? You'd think that this is the kind of little server behavior people would use all the time.
