Just wondering how to customize form templates in SS3, the old $dataFieldByName() doesn't work

I am wondering this too. dataFieldByName does work if you don't have the site in dev mode. I have gone through the API's and tried all kinds of things. I thought $Field(FieldName) or $FieldByName(FieldName) would work but neither did among a few other things I gave a try. The only thing I can get to work is dataFieldByName. So I just test my forms without dev mode.
