Prototype up() Method


previous next AddThis Social Bookmark Button


Advertisements

Returns element's first ancestor (or the index'th ancestor, if index is specified ) that matches cssRule.

If no cssRule is provided, all ancestors are considered. If no ancestor matches these criteria, undefined is returned.

Syntax:

element.up([cssRule][, index = 0])

Return Value:

  • Found HTMLElement.
  • undefined in case it does not find any element.

NOTE: element.up() and element.up(0) are equivalent.

Example:

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>
<script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
</script>
<script>

function showResult(){
   alert( "1 : " + $('fruits').up(1).innerHTML );
   alert( "2 : " + $('mcintosh').up('li').innerHTML );
   alert( "5 : " + $('fruits').up(99) );
}


</script>
</head>

<body>

   <p>Click the button to see the result.</p>

   <ul id="fruits">

   <li id="apples">
    <ul>
      <li id="golden-delicious">Golden Delicious</li>
      <li id="mutsu" class="yummy">Mutsu</li>
      <li id="mcintosh" class="yummy">McIntosh</li>
      <li id="ida-red">Ida Red</li>
    </ul>
   </li>
   </ul>

   <br />

   <input type="button" value="showResult" 
             onclick="showResult();"/>

</body>
</html>
