How to get the children of the this selector

0 votes

I have a layout similar to this:

<div id="..."><img src="..."></div>

and would like to use a jQuery selector to select the child img inside the div on click.

To get the div, I've got this selector:

$(this)

How can I get the child img using a selector?

Hello @kartik,

The jQuery constructor accepts a 2nd parameter called context which can be used to override the context of the selection.

jQuery("img", this);

Which is the same as using .find() like this:

jQuery(this).find("img");

If the imgs you desire are only direct descendants of the clicked element, you can also use .children():

jQuery(this).children("img");

Hope it helps!!
Thank you!
