Ok, maybe I'm just being dense, but I am reading the API for forms and I
am getting nothing from it.


What is proper use of the $F utility and what can it do for me?  I have
read the Form.Element.getValue and it means nothing to me.


I have this form:


    <form name="createPDF" action="/pdf/pdf_process.php" method="POST">

    <input type="hidden" name="A_NAME" value="John" />

    <input type="hidden" name="APPLY_DATE" value="<?=date("m/d/Y")?>" />

    <input type="hidden" name="A_BIRTH_DATE" value="01/01/01" />

    <input type="hidden" name="L_NAME" value="Jane" />

    <input type="hidden" name="L_BIRTH_DATE" value="01/01/01" />

    <input type="hidden" name="A_ACCOUNT" value="111111111" />



When I try to do alert($F('A_NAME')); I get an 'Object does not support
this property or method' error.  I get the same error when I try to
submit the form with 'document.createPDF.submit();' is there something
wrong with my form?
