    Is there a way to get the row number that caused the error when a server side validation failed

    for example in the function grid_error(e) in this example -ui/aspnet-mvc/helpers/grid/ajax-editing

    Hello Annie,

    By default there isn't any information for the model included in the errors returned from the server. It is possible to get the row by searching for the grid row that is currently in edit mode:
    function grid_error(e) {  
        if (e.errors) {
            var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
            var row = grid.tbody.children(".k-grid-edit-row");

    Another option would be to override the Errors property in the DataSourceResult so that it includes the model or model Id:
    var result = new[] { product }.ToDataSourceResult(request, ModelState);
    if (result.Errors != null)
        result.Errors = new
            Id = product.ProductID,
            errors = result.Errors
    return Json(result);
    and then use the Id to find the row.
