<div ng-repeat="s in items" class="listv">
<button ng-click="removeStudent($index)">remove</button>
<button ng-click="copyrow($index)">copy</button>
<button ng-click="editrow($index)">edit</button>

<div class="editpopup editpopup-{{istrue}} ">
<p>edit id:<input type="text" ng-model="editedid"></p>
<p>edit pname:<input type="text" ng-model="editedname"></p>
<button ng-click="save($index)">save</button>
<button ng-click="closepopup()">cancel</button>


var myApp=angular.module('myApp',[]);
$scope.items=[{id:1,pname:'box1'},{id:2,pname:'box2'}, {id:3,pname:'box3'}];





here is jsfiddle


The easiest way is to use angular.copy to create a clone of the object when edit is clicked and then when save is clicked copy the data to the item in the array.

First initilize $scope.editedItem

$scope.editedItem = {};

For editrow we store the currently edited index in $index and then clone the data into $scope.editedItem.

    $scope.$index = $index;
    angular.copy($scope.items[$index], $scope.editedItem);

Then in save we clone the data back into the object in the array:

    angular.copy($scope.editedItem, $scope.items[$scope.$index]) 

The view needs to be updated to instead use editedItem:

<div class="editpopup editpopup-{{istrue}} ">
    <p>edit id:<input type="text" ng-model="editedItem.id"></p>
    <p>edit pname:<input type="text" ng-model="editedItem.pname"></p>
    <button ng-click="save()">save</button>
    <button ng-click="closepopup()">cancel</button>
