    I am using Kendo Tree View.

    I am doing drag/drop and I need to persist the info to the db. 
    Looking via the Kendo Plugin in Chrome.. I see  the  "4"  which was originally "1" after the move.  ( image attached)

    Example: also see image attached.
    4: Object{13}  //see via Kendo Plugin

    I was thinking I could get this  value  for the children under the parent where the items moved (example  0-4 ) and I can pair up the actual id with this index to figure out the sort order for children for persistence.

    Is there a way ... like in Grid which has index..... we can do the same in Treeview ?

    Hello Rick,

    Unfortunately I couldn't understand what you need.

    What value are you trying to get? Also what is this grid index that you mention? The grid widget doesn't have an index method.

    If you want to get the data item to which a tree node is bound you can use the dataItem method.

    I found the solution.

    But the Object{x} I was noticing was the KendoUi deguging view in Chrome.

    Basically I was trying to see if the API had a way to give an indexed item array of all child items under a parent when you drag and drop an item  (over  parent ,,,after or before or over the child item).

    Kendo treeview has the  dropPosition  (over,before,after) and Target info which I was able to use to figure out where the dropped item need to be placed....  on the backend ..for persistence.
