    I am working on Kendo Grid with MVC.Net. I am using CRUD operations with editor template. I am unable to get the model id value in editor template to figure out if it is a new record or existing record.

     Here is my grid configuration which in cshtml file

                              .Columns(columns =>
                                  columns.Bound(col => col.Id);
                                  columns.Bound(col => col.Name);                            
                                  columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); command.Destroy(); });
                              .ToolBar(toolbar => toolbar.Create().Text("Add New Record"))
                              .Editable(editable => editable                                                       
                              .DataSource(dataSource =>
                                            .Model(m =>
                                                m.Id(a => a.Id);
                                                m.Field(a => a.Name)                                                                
                                            .Read(read => read.Action("TestRead", "TestControl", new { id = this.Model.Id }))
                                            .Create(create => create.Action("TestRead", "TestControl"))


    My Editor is in separate file names TestEditor.cshtml. I am able to add/edit records without any issues. I need to update only one column if it is existing record. Hence I am hiding the remaining fields (other than the one I am updating) in the editor window. So I was wondering if I can use the model's Id column to figure out if it is a new record or not.

    Here is my editor template : TestEditor.cshtml

    @model TestRecord

    // Render all the columns

    @if (this.Model.Id > 0)
        // only updated related column
