LogicalTreeHelper.GetParent Method

Returns the parent object of the specified object by processing the logical tree.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public static DependencyObject GetParent(
	DependencyObject current
)

Parameters

current
Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The object to find the parent object for. This is expected to be either a FrameworkElement or a FrameworkContentElement.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject
The requested parent object.

This method is merely a wrapper that gets the appropriate type version (FrameworkElement or FrameworkContentElement) of the FrameworkElement.Parent or FrameworkContentElement.Parent property; so unless you are unable to determine the current type, you might want to check the respective instance properties instead.
