public static method GetPrefabParent(source: Object): Object;
public static Object GetPrefabParent(Object source);


Returns the parent asset object of source, or null if it can't be found.

Use this function to get a prefab asset object the source was instantiated from. This also returns the prefab parent if the prefab has become disconnected, which can then be used to reconnect the prefab.
