How to select Parent Div in CSS [duplicate]

Tags: css,css3

Problem :

This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to select a parent div in google earth which it doesnt have any id or class and it it is just a div element. I used this method

div < div.well {background-color: red !important; }

since the div contains another div with the class of .well but this seems not working! can you please let me know what i am doing wrong?



Please Look at This Jsfiidle

Solution :

I dont know the context here, but if you can't modify the html, this is possible with jQuery as follows:

jQuery('div.well').parent('div').css('background', 'red');

As others have noted, there is no CSS solution.
