I am trying to put an icon before a series of dom elements that contain a required select.  

For example, I have the following div structures:
<div class="1">
    <div class="2">
        <select class="required">
    </div>
</div>

<div class="1">
    <div class="2">
        <select>
    </div>
</div>

I need to place the required icon in front of <div class="1"> that contains <select class="required">.

When I tried to do that it placed it in front of all <div class="1"> instead of just the <div class="1"> containing the <select class="required">.

How do I get it to show up in front of just the divs that contain the required select?

Thanks!

Hi
Can you share more information like how it is currently looking and how exactly you want it to look?

also share css definition for "required" and all others.

Something like this?
$('select.required').closest('div.1').before('<img src="image url" />');

Here is the script:
$('div.1').ready(function() {
    if ($('h5').children('select.required') && !$(this).next().is('span.required')) {
        $('div.1').before('<span class="required">&nbsp;</span>');

    }
});

Be aware that the div might break the line.
If the image is related to the select you might also consider put it before (or after) the select itself:
$('select.required').before('<img src="image url" />');

I have tried that, but the select is wrapped in two divs (I didn't create it, I just have to deal with it :) ), so the icon has to go outside of div.1.

So use my first option!
$('select.required').closest('div.1').before('<img src="image url" />');

That one almost works.  However, if I have two div.1s with select.required, I get two icons outside of the first div.1 Instead of one outside of each div.1 that has a required select.  See two required icons

I resolved it with .each() :).  Thanks!
