    I have a number of RadNumericTextboxes that all link to the same ValueChanged clientside event.
    In this event I want to get the parent element of this RadNumericTextbox (a table cell) and change its background color.
    However I have trouble getting the parent element. The RadNumericTextbox doesn't support the regular javascript 'parentNode' property so I can't use that. And I also have trouble selecting the RadNumericTextbox as a 'regular' DOM element because it's in a page with a masterpage, so the ID is useless.

    Can anyone help?

    You can use the following method the get the element of the numeric box:
    var numBoxEl = sender.get_element();
    Then, you can use the same properties and methods as with the standard input elements.

    Hope this helps. Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
