if the element is

<input type="hidden" name="myinput" value="myvalue" />

$(myinput).val() returns the value. No quotations.

Ahh..  Then,  $(form.element).val();

e.g.

<form name="myform">
<input type="hidden" name="myinput" value="myvalue" />
</form>


$(myform.myinput).val() returns value.

ok. Then try following html.

it will show

food1 = egg1 | food2 = egg2 | food3 = egg3 |
<html>
<head>
  <script src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script>
  $(document).ready(function(){
        var a=[];
        a=$("form > *");
        for (var i = 0; i < a.length; i++) {
                $("div").append(a.get(i).name+" = "+a.get(i).value+" | ");
        }
  });
  </script>
</head>
<body>
  <form>
  <input type="hidden" name="food1" value="egg1">
  <input type="hidden" name="food2" value="egg2">
