I planning to save the user submitted file in the civicrm file table. I have tried these code to get the submitted file name, but it doesn't work

function postprocess(){
    $file = $this->_submitValues['uploadFile'];

Any help would be appreciated!

Update :

This is my code, i can get the title, option value except the uploaded file name.where am i going wrong ??

function buildQuickForm() {
    $this->add('text', 'title', ts('Title'),'' ,TRUE);
    $this->add('File', 'uploadFile', ts('Upload the file'),  TRUE);
    $this->add('select', 'option', ts('option'),
        '0' => ts('- select -'),
        '3' => ts('option 1'),
        '4' => ts('option 2')

        'type' => 'submit',
        'name' => ts('Submit'),
        'isDefault' => TRUE,

  function postprocess(){

    foreach($this->_submitValues as $key => $values){
