Add, Update, Delete Records in a Gridview using SqlDataSource

By default, the GridView control doesn’t have support for inserting new records. However you can use the built-in edit or delete functionality of the GridView control. Let us explore how to insert new records and Update and Delete existing records in Gridview. Just copy and paste the code in your project. We will be using the ‘Categories’ table in the ‘Northwind’ database.
