Datagrid to textboxes

Hi,

     I have a datagrid that pulls info into 7 columns.  The first two columns are ID and Password.  Above the grid I have 2 textboxes, txtName and txtPassword, and when the user clicks on a particular record in the datagrid, I'd like the first two columns' values, ID and Password, to go into their respective textboxes above.  I can't figure out how to access the user selected row, column by column, item by item.

Hi Gleznov,


Just bind your textboxes to the same dataset as your datagrid

like

datagrid1.datasource = yourdataset.tables(0)
txtname.bindings.add("text",yourdataset.tables(0),"name")
txtpassword.bindings.add("text",yourdataset.tables(0),"password")

this way if you move to a new record in the datagrid the textboxes automatically follow

If you don't want to bind the textboxes here is another way:

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    Public Sub New()
        MyBase.New()

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

    End Sub

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        If disposing Then
            If Not (components Is Nothing) Then
