I'm still new to Drupal so this might be a really obvious thing to you all, but it's eluding me so far!

I'm creating a form that has a fieldset like this:

$form['myfieldset'] = array(
    '#title' => 'My field set',
    '#type' => 'fieldset',
$form['myfieldset']['item1'] = array(
    '#title' => t('My first fieldset item'),
    '#type' => 'textfield',

My question is how to access the value of ['myfieldset']['item1'] once the form is submitted. In my form_submit function, if I try and access the value through
I get an error saying that it doesn't exist. If I try and access it through $form_state['values']['myfieldset']['item1']
it's returned as an array. How do I get access to the value?

$form_state['values']['item1'] should work. can you post the full code?

Did you clear the cache?

It turns out that the field I'm trying to access is a date field and they're returned as an array of year/month/day.
