vbturbo is correct !! but for passing infomation to other form,
you need some method that accept that data


Dim frm As Form = new Form
call that public method to pass THAT data..
frm.method_at_NEWFORM(sorted_Data)


public sub method_at_NEWFORM(sorted_data)
{
...
}

Yeah theGhost_k8

I didn't see he wanted to take the row data into the new opened form....thanks for the wake up call --:')

To VBdotnet2005

You could add a module to your project and declare a public variable

public  ID as integer
public  col1_row_cell_data as integer
public  col2_row_cell_data as integer



  Private Sub DataGrid1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.MouseDown
        Dim DataGrid1 As DataGrid = CType(sender, DataGrid)

        Dim hti As System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid.HitTestInfo

        hti = DataGrid1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y)
        Try
           'Assign the clicked row cell data to the variables for later access when opening the form
            ID = DataGrid1(hti.Row, 0).ToString()
            col1_row_cell_data = DataGrid1(hti.Row, 0).ToString()
            col2_row_cell_data = DataGrid1(hti.Row, 0).ToString()

            If hti.Type = DataGrid.HitTestType.Cell Then
 
              MessageBox.Show(dataGrid1(hti.Column).ToString())
              if dataGrid1(hti.Column).ToString() = "ID"  then ' your column name ID

             Dim frm As New Queryform
             frm.ShowDialog()
             'in the frm that is [open now / going to open]
             'add some labels or what ever
             'lbl0.text=ID
             'lbl1.text=col1_row_cell_data
             'lbl2.text=col2_row_cell_data
            End If
 
         Else
 
             If hti.Type = DataGrid.HitTestType.ColumnHeader Then 'assumes datasource is a dataview
 
          MessageBox.Show(CType(DataGrid1.DataSource, DataView).Table.Columns(hti.Column).ToString())
 
     End If

        Catch '//empty catch .. do nothing

        End Try
    End Sub

alter these
               
            ID = DataGrid1(hti.Row, 0).ToString()
            col1_row_cell_data = DataGrid1(hti.Row, 1).ToString()
            col2_row_cell_data = DataGrid1(hti.Row, 2).ToString()
