Finding closest element without jQuery

0 votes

I am trying to find the closest element with a specific tag name without jquery. When I click on a <th> I want to get access to the <tbody> for that table. Suggestions? I read about offset but didn't really understand it too much. Should I just use:

Assume th is already set to clicked th element

th.offsetParent.getElementsByTagName('tbody')[0]
