I created a grid with a details row and add/edit/delete capabilities. When you select a row and click the edit button (it does not happen if you dblclick) the row is not shifted correctly to the right one extra column because of the details dropdown. Below is the code 

<script id="contNotesRow" type="text/x-jsrender">
<button class="btn btn-flat btn-default btn-xs notesEdit right" data-id="{{:contact_id}}">Edit Notes</button>
<div id="contnotes_row">{{:contact_notes}}</div>
var contgrid = $("#gridschcont").ejGrid({
            dataSource: contdata,
            detailsTemplate : "#contNotesRow",
isResponsive: true,
enableResponsiveRow: true,
columns: [
                { field: "contact_id", allowEditing:false, isIdentity:true, isPrimaryKey: true, textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Center, headerText: "ID", width:70 },
                { field: "contact_name", cssClass:'ww', headerText: 'Full Name', validationRules: { required: true, minlength: 5 } },
                { field: "contact_position", cssClass:'ww', headerText: 'Position', validationRules: { required: false, minlength: 5 } },
                { field: "contact_email",cssClass:'ww', headerText: 'Email', validationRules: { required: false, minlength: 5 } },
                { field: "contact_phone", cssClass:'ww', headerText: 'Phone', validationRules: { required: false, minlength: 10 } },
                { field: "contact_ext", headerText: 'Ext', textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Center , width:70},
                { field: "contact_fax", cssClass:'ww', headerText: 'Fax', validationRules: { required: false, minlength: 10 } }
            contextMenuSettings: { enableContextMenu: false},
    editSettings: {allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true, showDeleteConfirmDialog : true},
            toolbarSettings: {
            showToolbar: true, 
            toolbarItems: [

Thanks for looking into it. 

I found what was doing it after your answer. I had one thing that I forgot to put in the code I sent, this line seems to do it

recordClick: function(args){$("#Grid").ejGrid("expandCollapse",$(args.row[0].firstChild));}

with this line I was using it to open and close the details row by click on the parent row. But with this command in there it does something to shift it when you use the button. 
I added this line to your example and it started doing what I was seeing. 

Not sure if im doing something weird with that line, thought I was just expand/collapsing the child row. So I took this out and my grid seems to work fine now
