populating ASP.NET website Data Grid View dynamically based on text input parameter

I have built a concept 3-tier application that consists a back-end data store (SQL Server 2005), a middle tier Web Service and ASP.NET front end.

I am trying to create a front-end that has the following capability:

I should be able to input a "customer identification number" via a text box. Once I click the "submit" button, It should navigate to another asp page and then display a data grid view based on data set returned by a middle tier web method based on the my given input parameter that the web method takes in the previous page from the text input.

Do I need to worry about states in this scenario? If yes, would it be the value of the inputted into the text box ?

In the second page, can I still configure the data grid view using the wizard or do I need to do it programatically, since the input parameter of we the web service method is set during run time ?

create a DataView and set DataSource property of the DataGrid to the DataView.

Then, on click of a button, set RowFilter property of the dataview to equal "CustomerID='" & TextBox1.text & "'"
and then Bind your datagrid
Public dv As DataView

dv= New DataView(ds.Tables(0))

Then on click of a button do something like this:
dv.RowFilter="CustomerID='" & TextBox1.Text & "'"
DataGrid1.DataSource = dv

Thanks for your response.

1) The first 3 lines of code you provided.... does that go into the 2nd page (where the datagrid is displayed) ?

2) The last 3 lines of the code you provided... goes on the "on click" method of the button on the 1st page ?

3) So there is no "states" involved in this situation ?

I am coding in C#.

yes, you are correct.

Here is C# code:

DataView dv;
dv = new DataView(ds.Tables[0]);
DataGrid1.DataSource = dv;

    dv.RowFilter = ("CustomerID=\'"
                + (TextBox1.Text + "\'"));
    DataGrid1.DataSource = dv;

I figured out how to move values from one page to the other.

I could either use Cross page posting new to .NET 2.0 or Sessions.

Thank you for help with respect to programmatically bind the data to a data grid view.
