I want to create a windows form with a textfield where I can enter a MODEL NUMBER of the TV for example click search button and search a database table for a model number. Once a match is met I would like to populate a datagrid with the title for the model number. I want to be able to double click on a title. If I double click on a title in a datagrid I want a textfield on a form to get the value of a title from a datagrid. Any tutorials out there that accouplish something similar? Can anybody help?

This is what the datagrid should look like after it is populated with a data from a database.
----------------------------------------------
| Model Number |  Title of The Model   |
----------------------------------------------
| vpw425           | View Sonic              |
----------------------------------------------
| kde50xbr         | Sony Plasma TV      |
----------------------------------------------

I think this will solve your problem:

You can use the DataGrid's double-click event and its HitTest method to catch a double click on a header.
 
     private void dataGrid1_DoubleClick(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
 
     {
 
          System.Drawing.Point pt = dataGrid1.PointToClient(Cursor.Position);
 

 
          DataGrid.HitTestInfo hti = dataGrid1.HitTest(pt);
 

 
          if(hti.Type == DataGrid.HitTestType.ColumnHeader)
 
          {
 
               MessageBox.Show("double clicked clicked column header " + hti.Column.ToString());
 
          }
 
     }
