How to get UITableView from UITableViewCell?

I have a UITableViewCell which is linked to an object and I need to tell if the cell is visible. From the research I've done, this means I need to somehow access the UITableView that contains it (from there, there are several ways to check if it's visible). So I'm wondering if UITableViewCell has a pointer to the UITableView, or if there was any other way to get a pointer from the cell?

Answer

To avoid iOS version checks

id view = [tableViewCellInstance superview];

while (view && [view isKindOfClass:[UITableView class]] == NO) {
    view = [view superview]; 
}

    UITableView *tableView = (UITableView *)view;
