Databinding dataset with multiple tables to textboxes

I have a bunch of text boxes that I would like to databind to a dataset that has two tables with a one to many relationship between them.  I am using the bindingcontext to navigate through the rows of the master table, which nicely scrolls through the data and displays it in the textboxes that are bound to the Master table.  However, I have other textboxes that I would like bound to the child table to display a value that has a relationship to the master.  

Is this possible through databinding?  if not Could someone expain how to do this??

create a dataview of your child table and bind to that instead of the datatable
use the dataview.rowfilter property to control what record(s) are viewable.

dim dv as new dataview(childtable)
dv.rowfilter = "FKID = " + dtMaster.rows(currentrecord).item("PKID").tostring
