Getting HTML form values

How can I get the value of an HTML form to pass to JavaScript?

Is this correct? My script takes two arguments one from textbox, one from the dropdown box.

<body>
<form name="valform" action="" method="POST">

Credit Card Validation: <input type="text" id="cctextboxid" name="cctextbox"><br/>
Card Type: <select name="cardtype" id="cardtypeid">
  <option value="visa">Visa</option>
  <option value="mastercard">MasterCard</option>
  <option value="discover">Discover</option>
  <option value="amex">Amex</option>
  <option value="diners">Diners Club</option>
</select><br/>
<input type="button" name="submit" value="Verify Credit Card" onclick="isValidCreditCard(document.getElementById('cctextboxid').value,document.getElementById('cardtypeid').value)" />
</body>

Answer

HTML:

<input type="text" name="name" id="uniqueID" value="value" />

JS:

var nameValue = document.getElementById("uniqueID").value;
