I am using Jquery to produce dynamic text fields. The result of the form is as per the below.

How can I retrieve the content of myText[] for each field using Coldfusion?

<form method="post" action="collect_vals.cfm">
<div class="input_fields_wrap">
    <button class="add_field_button">Add More Fields</button>
    <div><input type="text" name="mytext[]"></div>
    <div><input type="text" name="mytext[]"></div>
    <div><input type="text" name="mytext[]"></div>
    <div><input type="text" name="mytext[]"></div>
    <div><input type="text" name="mytext[]"></div>
</div>
</form>

When the form is submitted, the text input value is found in a variable of the form:

    form.myText

where myText is the name of the input field.

You cannot have brackets [] as part of your text input field's name.

Assuming the bracket is a sequential number such as  myText1, myText2, then to access the variable names dynamically, you can use a loop...
<cfloop index="kk" from=1 to="#form.numberRecords#">

   <cfset theValue = form["myTEXt" & kk]>
    --- the form field value is now in TheValue variable ---

</cfloop>
