something like:

            Dim wibble As New DataGrid
            Dim table As DataTable = CType(wibble.DataMember, DataTable)
            For Each row As DataRow In table.Rows
                If CType(row.Item("Name"), String).Trim.Equals("Dave") Then
                    'do something - select the row here....
                End If
