This should be really simple but I’m having trouble with it. How do I get a parent div of a child element?
<div id="test"> <p id="myParagraph">Testing</p> </div>
var pDoc = document.getElementById("myParagraph"); var parentDiv = ??????????
I would have thought
parent.container would work but I keep getting
not defined errors. Note that the
pDoc is defined, just not certain variables of it.
P.S. I would prefer to avoid jQuery if possible.
parentDiv = pDoc.parentNode;
- DOM2 Core specification – well-supported by all major browsers
- DOM2 HTML specification – bindings between the DOM and HTML
- DOM3 Core specification – some updates, not all supported by all major browsers
- HTML5 specification – which now has the DOM/HTML bindings in it
