When working with forms, you often want to interact directly with the form elements. This method will return the DOM container element for the requested field, allowing standard jQuery / DOM manipulation of the field.

If you require a reference to the field's input element, use the field().input() method rather than this one as it is simpler and more direct.

Note that the node() method provides the same functionality as this method for a single field, and extends that ability to be able to operate with multiple fields if required.
