I have a datagrid that has the first column as a boolean checkbox and the other 5 columns are textbox controls. The user will click the check box for their selection and then I want to get the values of each text box in that row to display on the next form, so I want to populate some variables to pass. How do I achieve this?

You have to loop through each row in the datagrid,

Dim dataTable = datagrid.DataSource
Dim firstcolumn as string
Dim seconColumn as string

for i = 0 to dataTable.Rows.Count -1
if(ctype(datagrid.Item(i,0) , boolean)
firstcolumn  = ctype(datagrid.Item(i,1) , string)
secondColumn = ctype(datagrid.Item(i,2) , string)
End if
Next i


Public Property FirstColumn As string
   Get
      Return firstcolumn  
   End Get
   Set
      firstcolumn  = value
   End Set
End Property

Public Property SecondColumn As string
   Get
      Return secondColumn
   End Get
Set
      secondColumn = value
   End Set
End Property

U can access these properties from form2.

Dim frm1 as Form1
frm1 = new Form1
 Dim str as string = frm1.FirstColumn // Like this

Hi,
Try This,
On the event click of the colmen checkbox use this to get the other values,


Dim Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5 As String
Field1 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(0, DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex))
Field2 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(1, DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex))
Field3 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(2, DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex))
Field4 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(3, DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex))
Field5 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(4, DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex))

Sorry, a little mistake :P

Try This

Dim Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5 As String
Field1 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex,0))
Field2 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex,1))
Field3 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex,2))
Field4 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item(DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex,3))
Field5 = Convert.ToString(DataGrid1.Item( DataGrid1.CurrentRowIndex,4))
