add search textbox to a VB datagrid then highlight the cell

I want to have a text box with say a 'go' submit button that will search through my displayed datagrid (visual basic)  and display "not found" or if found the cell found is highlighted.
I am a begginer to VB
I am using PCstatusDataset, Workstaionbindingsource and workstationstableadaptor
i have imports system.data.sqlclient
the data grid is called workstationsdatagridview
the database is called pcstatus. The table is called workstations the two columns I wish to search through are called 'PC'  and 'Username'. and then the cursor moves to that cell that is found.

Thanks
steve

Here's the pseudo code

        For index As Integer = 1 To DataGridView1.Rows.Count
            For index1 As Integer = 1 To DataGridView1.Rows(index).Cells.Count
                If (DataGridView1.Rows(index).Cells(index1).Value.ToString().Contains(searchString)) Then
                    DataGridView1.Rows(index).Cells(index1).Selected = True
                End If
            Next
        Next
