either have your edit button send a request to the server to populate the form
or use javascript to populate it without sending a request

Keep invisible text-boxes on the form. When the edit button is clicked, make them visible and populate them with the initial data (which was otherwise displayed on the table). When the user updates it and clicks on some button, submit the request to the server.
