jQuery parentsUntil

Syntax:

$(selector).parentsUntil(stop,filter) ;

Parameter description:

  • stop: This parameter represents the element where to stop the search for matching ancestor elements. It can be an expression, element or jQuery object. It is optional.
  • filter: This parameter is used to represents a selector expression to narrow down the parent search for ancestors between selector and stop. It is also optional.

To return multiple ancestors, separate each expression with a comma.
