Visual Basic -- Find text in a datagridview

I have loaded a subset of a SQL table into a Datagridview in Visual Basic.  I want to allow the user to enter text to find in the data in the Datagridview.  I can set up a button or a menu command, but I don't know the command to tell the program to search through the Datgridview for the text.  Could someone give me the command?

If you're searching for that text in a specific column then you could use something like

Dim iTtempSearchRow as integer
Dim iSearchRow as integer

iTempSearchRow = iSearchRow
           
If txtSearch <> "" Then 'the text you are searching for    
    With fgdGrid
        For i = iSearchRow + 1 To .Rows - 1
            If InStr(.TextMatrix(i, {id for your search column}), txtSearch) Then
                .row = i
                .RowSel = i
                .col = 0
                .ColSel = {id for your search column}
                .TopRow = i
                .Highlight = flexHighlightAlways
                iSearchRow = i
                Exit For
            End If
        Next i
    End With
End If

If searchRow = tempSearchRow Then
    If tempSearchRow = 0 Then
         MsgBox "No Records were found with a matching PO number."
    End if
End If

If you want to search the whole grid you'de need to Iterate the columns within the for loop iterating the rows

Good luck

Thanks.  I'm assuming that is VB 6 since I couldn't get it to work exactly in .NET.  Of course, I didn't specify that I was using .NET.  This gave me enough help that I could get my code written.

Yes that was VB6.0....Your question was in the VB TA.....not the .NET TA.

Glad I could help
