dijit.byId

dijit.byId("id") works almost like document.getElementById("id"). However,it only works on declared dijit elements. See also dojo.byId

How to use

Tips and tricks

dijit.byId would not work on HTML elements not specified as an dijit element:

<script type="text/javascript">
dijit.byId('s21').set('value', 'New value for text field') );
</script>
 
<!-- Remember to declare the destination as a data-dojo-type -->
<input type="text"  id="s21" name="result"
	     data-dojo-type="dijit.form.TextBox"
             data-dojo-id="s21" >

Verified in

IE 8, Firefox 3.6.22, Dojo 1.6.1
