Populating controls from selecting a row in a DataGrid

Hey there everyone,

I'm a newbie to VisualStudio.NET so I'm still struggling my way though it.

I am busy with a project and have a DataGrid that is populated with a list of names (I have created the Connection, Adapter & DataSet to do this and have the correct Data Members & Data Source selected)

What I want to do is have the controls on my form populated when I select a name from the datagrid.

What I have done is create a button (to test of course) that would load the data, however I am stuck on how I specify the row to be used in the datagrid (grdEmpList). I have this that loads all the controls but only with the first entry in the db.

    Private Sub butLoad_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles butLoad.Click
    End Sub

Hi craiq, just bind your controls to the same datasource as your datagrid, then it will fill the controls automatically when you select a row or cell from the datagrid
