    When the user updates a field of a new (create action) or existing (update action) data record, a litte red flag is shown to indicate that the changes haven't been sent to the server yet.

    How can I make these flags keep staying after the user clicked on "Save changes" in case a server side error (e.g. validation) occurred, and therefore to signal the user that he/she has to correct its changes and click on "Save changes" again?

    (I am working with DataTables)

    Since Batch Editing is an entirely client-side oriented edit mode, all the changes made on the client will be lost on postback and there is no built-in functionality that will allow you to overcome this behavior. With Batch Editing, all validations that you need to perform on the user input needs to be performed on client-side. If you need complex server-side validation you should consider switching to another edit mode.
