getDescendants() broken for various layout widgets

Description (last modified by bill)

This is fallout from #5865.

In Dojo 1.1, _Widget.getDescendats() searches widgets off "containerNode", which did under "domNode" in 1.0.

 getDescendants: function(){
  // summary:
  // Returns all the widgets that contained by this, i.e., all
widgets underneath this.containerNode.
   var list= dojo.query('[widgetId]', this.containerNode);
   return;  // Array
   return [];

This change causes destroyDescendants() not working for some layout widgets, as they do not set "containerNode"...

While, _Container.getChildren() still does access domNode:

 getChildren: function(){
  // summary:
  //  Returns array of children widgets
  return dojo.query("> [widgetId]", this.containerNode || this.domNode).map(dijit.byNode); // Array

Maybe can add this to _Container.postCreate():

   this.containerNode = this.domNode;

and then modify getChildren() and friends to use this.containerNode exclusively.

Note that getDescendants()/destroyDescendants() on a plain widget with widgets in it's template but no true descendants should do nothing; need to make sure that the widgets in the template aren't destroyed in that case either.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [13521]) Fix leak where destroyDescendants() wasn't working on layout widgets.

Problem was that getDescendants() wasn't finding the children (and grandchildren, etc) of widgets which didn't set containerNode, particularly layout widgets with no templates.

Fixes #6604. !strict

(In [13537]) Fix bug where closing a tree node would hide the node itself rather than just it's children; regression from [13521].

TreeNode? is unusual in that it defines containerNode lazily, so the code in _Container to set containerNode automatically was actually messing things up.

Fixes #6673, refs #6604. !strict
