closest(element, selector, checkSelf)

  • element - will check this elements parents
  • selector - CSS selector to match parents
  • checkSelf - check element. If falsey, will begin with element.parentNode and is synonymous to $.fn.parents. Otherwise, it's $.fn.closest.

closest(document.body, 'body', true) === document.body
