Hi Bharat,

We have analyzed your requirement to alert error message when duplicate data is inserted to grid.

Based on your requirement we have created a sample in webapi and angular js. The sample can be downloaded from the below location.

Sample Link: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/119999/ze/Sample-1759478651

In the ActionBegin event of the grid, when the requestType is “save”, we have compared the inserted values with grid datasource. If the values are same, we have prevented the AJAX save request by defining args.cancel as true and closed the dialog. Please refer the below code snippet.

    <script type="text/javascript">

        angular.module('Ctrl', ['ejangular'])

          .controller('GridCtrl', function ($scope) {

              . . . .

             $scope.actionBegin = function (args) {

                  if (args.requestType == "beginEdit" || args.requestType == "add") {

                      promise = (this.model.dataSource()).executeQuery(new ej.Query());


                          data = e.result;// get the dataSOurce of the grid



                  if (args.requestType == "save") {                     

                      for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++)

                          //check if the entered data is already present in the grid

                              if (args.data.CustomerID == data[i].CustomerID || args.data.EmployeeID == data[i].EmployeeID || args.data.ShipCountry == data[i].ShipCountry) {

                                  args.cancel = true;                                 

                                  alert("Please enter only unique values");

                                  $("#" + this._id + "_dialogEdit").ejDialog("close");
