So by now everyone pretty much knows about dojo.query(), the powerful function search a DOM for elements. But, did you know you can also use a syntax to get the immediate child elements of query? Yep, this hidden little gem is very powerful, you simply add a “>” at the end of the query. So the same supported queries plus this sign simply returns the immediate children of the result.
dojo.query('#main > *') dojo.query('#main >') dojo.query('.foo >') dojo.query('.foo > *') - link
You should check out the documentation, you can use dojo.query() with many different variations to get all kinds of different results.
