I was requested to build a table with updatable fields, is sort of a gridview but all the cell labels will be static , but I need to chnage the ability to chnage the color according to a drop down filed which will select the status of the room.. Would I go for a gridview or just create a table and have those fields some how pull the status from a db?
do you prefer a GridView or a HTML table?

Whats the best approach?

Personally I would still go with a GridView. It's going to render as a HTML table anyway, but you get the added programmability should you need it.

How about ListView?

I guess, the only concer is that I have to somehitng like            

Room                         Floor                                     Status
101                               1                                         open
102                               2                                         occupied
103
(fixed number )         (fixed number )                        (chnage)

I need to update the status regulary, so whats the best thig I should go?

Not sure a ListView would necessarily be the best option. A Repeater might work for you, it's more lightweight than the GridView and you could still configure it to output a table. I guess it really depends on how much you need to customize the behaviour.

I would. If you need to edit the data that you are showing, and you want it in a tabular format, then the GridView with certainly be the easiest to work with.
