Thread: DOM transversal going upwards

DOM transversal going upwards
so, in jQuery there's a transversal method called closest:
which you can supply a selector and it will travel up the DOM until it finds an element that matches.
in my case, I need to find the contenteditable div that a text node belongs to, so in jquery it would be something like:
It only has to work on firefox, so query selectors were looking promising, but they travel down from the specified element - I need something that travels up.
Does anybody know of anything in vanilla js that does something similar to jQuery's closest(), or am I stuck with walkin' the tree, or is there some other possible solution?
thanks in advance...

that would... I'm always a little nervous about while loops, but I guess that would be the most logical

i always use .isContentEditable instead of .contentEditable, but i don't remember why it's important.Create, Share, and Debug HTML pages and snippets with a cool new web app I helped create: pagedemos.com
