1. On page load, Fill a DataTable with records retrieved from Database.
2. Store the DataTable in Session. Also bind the DataTable to the GridView.
3. In the Edit/Update events, Get the DatatTable from Session, Update/Edit the appropriate record in the DataTable, Store it in Session again, Re-bind the DataTable to GridView.

You can finally update the DataTable with database. After saving, clear the session variable which is used for storing it.

It is not advisable to store a large DataTable in Session.
