What is cssParentSelector

cssParentSelector is a polyfill based on jQuery that allows you to use parent selector in CSS.

License

Released under MIT and GPL licenses.

Installation

Just attach this plugin to your code and that's all.


Usage

parent! target > child:state

Quick info about parent selector in CSS4

! - determines subject of selector according to CSS4 reference

E > F - selects an F element, child of E

E! > F - selects an E element, parent of F

Parent

Any vaild selector is okey, id, class, even like this one: input[type=checkbox]

Target

This is optional, after we've got PARENT of our CHILD selector, we look for this TARGET element within PARENT.

Child

Based on this, we select PARENT element.

State

As for now plugin supports:

  • changed, selected
  • checked
  • focus
  • hover
  • click
  • dblclick
  • active

Sample

  

Yay, you've changed value.

<p class="custom">
  <input type="checkbox" name="name" placeholder="Value" class="dashed">
  <span class="message">Yay, you've checked.</span>
</p>
