Here you will see how to edit or delete a record using Editable Datagrid Screen in a LightSwitch application using Visual Studio 2012.

In my previous article I described how to add a record using Editable DataGrid Screen (see http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/18ddf7/adding-new-records-using-editable-datagrid-screen-in-lightsw/),

The following is the procedure for editing a record in the Editable DataGrid Screen.

There are two ways by which you can edit a record.

Step 1
