I have one list.in that list title column,Start date ,Due DAte ,Assigned To,Status column is there.And some entries also there.All the list items i am displaying in one grid.After that in that grid Status column i need to change as editable.Aftet that one button is there named as save.On click of save that particular row should change in list also.For example in Particular row status column i am changing as completed then in list also it should update as completed.Just imagine i have 3 rows.3 rows i edited the status as completed.After click save button in list also 3 rows should change as completed.

Using ASP.net: https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/1e050f/edit-and-update-record-in-gridview-in-Asp-Net/

First, you need to add an EditItemTemplate in the TemplateField that specifies a custom user interface (UI) for the item in edit mode then RowUpdating to update the list. Try this sample code, replace YourDbContext with the name of your DbContext, and YourList with the name of your list. Also, replace DropDownList1 with the ID of your DropDownList. Try and let me know if this works for you.

protected void GridView1_RowUpdating(object sender, GridViewUpdateEventArgs e)
    // Get the new values from the GridView row
    string newStatus = ((DropDownList)GridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].FindControl("DropDownList1")).SelectedValue;

    // Get the ID of the item to update
    int id = Convert.ToInt32(GridView1.DataKeys[e.RowIndex].Value);

    // Use Entity Framework to update the database
    using (YourDbContext db = new YourDbContext())
        // Find the item in the database using the ID
        var item = db.YourList.Find(id);

        // Update the status
        item.Status = newStatus;

        // Save the changes to the database

    // Rebind the GridView to show the changes
