In d3.js, you can access the parent node data using the .parent property. Here's an example of how you can do it:

  1. First, select the current node using d3.select().
1
var node = d3.select("#myNode");


  1. To access the parent node, use the .parent property on the selected node.
1
var parentNode = node.node().parentNode;


  1. Finally, you can retrieve the data associated with the parent node using the .data() method.
1
var parentData = d3.select(parentNode).data()[0];


Here is an example to demonstrate this approach:


HTML:

1
2
3
<div id="myNode">
    <p>Child Node</p>
</div>


JavaScript:

1
2
3
4
var node = d3.select("#myNode");
var parentNode = node.node().parentNode;
var parentData = d3.select(parentNode).data()[0];
console.log(parentData);


This will log the data of the parent node to the console.
