ASP.NET gridview Edit LinkButton

I have a GridView that has a Delete and Edit LinkButtons at the end of every row.  What I want to get accomplished is that when the user clicks the Edit LinkButton, that they will then be able to edit any of the values in the selected row they chose to Edit, and then the Edit LinkButton will then read "Update" and when the user clicks Update it will execute the UPDATE statement on the DataSource that is specified for the GridView

Here is the code for the GridView right now.  Nothing happens when I click the Edit LinkButton.

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" oreColor="#333333" AutoGenerateColumns="False"

            EnableModelValidation="True" AllowSorting="True" Width="468px"
            onrowdatabound="GridView1_RowDataBound">
            <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" />

This is a common requirement of a GridView. There are tons of examples online for the proper way to set up that functionality. You are primarily missing the event handlers for OnRowEditing, OnRowUpdating, etc. Look here:
