Selecting rows in a Datagrid

I'm using a Datagrid with a column to select the row. How do I detect that the row was selected? How do I get the data from the columns in the selected row?

the question above is if you choose to select the whole row instead of a cell....suppose id know, i answered it :)

you need to use the CurrentCellChanged event handler to see if a new row was selected

    Private Sub DataGrid1_CurrentCellChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.CurrentCellChanged
        'do stuff here, and heres how you tell what row and column you have selected
        Dim row As Integer = DataGrid1.CurrentCell.RowNumber
        Dim col As Integer = DataGrid1.CurrentCell.ColumnNumber
    End Sub

if you want data from your datagrid, heres how you go about it (i use this in my double click event procedure)

    Private Sub DataGrid1_DoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.DoubleClick
        'use this for err handling
        If DataGrid1.CurrentCell.RowNumber = 0 And DataGrid1.CurrentCell.ColumnNumber = 0 Then
            Exit Sub
        Else
            Me.cbosearch.SelectedIndex = DataGrid1.CurrentCell.ColumnNumber
            Me.txtSearch.Text = DataGrid1.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentCell.RowNumber, DataGrid1.CurrentCell.ColumnNumber)
        End If
    End Sub

this line

Me.txtSearch.Text = DataGrid1.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentCell.RowNumber, DataGrid1.CurrentCell.ColumnNumber)

should answer your second question.  you need to use the CurrentCell property with both of your problems.
