    I have a rather large form which is spread over a series of tabs to break it down into sections. I have a single "Save" button that uses ajax to post the form. This all works fine, and the validator shows errors next to the controls that fail validation. The issue i have is that if i try and save something on one tab it isn't immediately clear which tab might be showing a control that fails validation, and therefore isn't clear to the user why the form hasn't submitted.

    What i'd like to do is use the validationsummary or a simple div to display the errors above the tabs in a list form. I've been experimenting with the KendoValidator and can see the list or errors under validator._errors. but is it possible to access the _errors values to append to a div using a foreach on validator_errors?

    Hello Ant,

    The errors can be retrieved via the errors method. Similar to the following:

          <!-- form content-->
    <ul id="errors"></ul>
        $(document).ready(function() {
                validate: function() {
        function showErrors(errors) {               
            var errorsContainer = $("#errors");
            var html = "";
            for (var idx = 0; idx < errors.length; idx++) {
                html += "<li>" + errors[idx] + "</li>";
