Is there a selector similar to jquery closest?

Recommended Posts

Let's say there's  page structure like


And 1-main-st uses a template called House.php and dishwasher uses a template called Appliance.php.

Then let's say I use a selector to get all appliances, say, with an expired warranty.

Then I want to find the house it belongs to.

In jquery, you can use "closest('.house')" for example to locate the encapsulating house.

Is there a way to select the house in PW?  To walk "up" the page hierarchy until I get to the first one with a certain template?

I believe I can easily code one based on a technique shown by Ryan in http://processwire.com/talk/topic/2262-exclude-pages-with-unpublished-parent/?hl=selector#entry21087 but I'd hate to re-invent the wheel.

Sometime when trying to figure out selectors I find an example in these forums that makes me slap my forehead and say "Of Course!  Duh.".

No problem, we all were there. This adds another keyword to the index so the next maybe able to find it. ;)
