How to find the properties responsible when an EntityValidationErrors occurs.

So I just upgraded my Entity Framework to version 6.0 and started getting the EntityValidationErrors . It turn outs I have been following a wrong pattern in creating views and models. I did not use the ViewModel concept and added extra fields to the normal model. So during the validations these extra fields keep causing the errors.

The error I keep getting was “Validation failed for one or more entities. See ‘EntityValidationErrors’ property for more details”, and does not give any details of the fields responsible for the error. The following code gives you the properties list that caused the error.
