How to create reusable dialog lookup (inherited) form for a gridview

I have an application in C# 2005, using winforms, basically a rewrite of a VB application.  Most of the forms have datagrids, and the database is Sybase, which requires a non-simple method of attaching to the database using my employer's custom interfaces.  The grids are populated using existing stored procedures returning a datatable object.  I can populate the grids fine but I need a simple pop-up box that I can reuse on these forms that will search for any existing rowvalue in the grid's datatable.  I would think that this is what form inheritance is designed for, but I've never used it.  Any ideas/help is much appreciated.

You can create another form object in your solution. Then you can use your grid view form to open a copy of this new dialogue form. With that, you will have a Parent-Child relationship and can pass information via this.Parent()
