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

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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"
            DataKeyNames="Id" DataSourceID="DataSource1"
            EnableModelValidation="True" AllowSorting="True" Width="468px"
            onrowdatabound="GridView1_RowDataBound">

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:
