Hi aarontham;

The DataGridView should automatically select the first row by default. This is how it can be done
programmatically:

        If DataGridView1.Rows.Count = 1 Then
            DataGridView1.CurrentCell = DataGridView1.Item(0, 0)
        End If

If there is only 1 row in the search result, you can call the label population method manually. Put the code that sets the labels into a Sub, then use that sub in the selection change event. After performing search, if there is only one row then call that sub automatically.

Hi,
You would use something like the following code

Grid_SelectionChangedEvent:
LoadLabels()

btnSearch_Click:
'code for performing search
...
if grid.rows.count = 1 then
   LoadLabels()
end if

Private Sub LoadLabels()
    If grid.selectedrows.count = 1 then
       lblName.text = grid.selectedrows(0).Cells("Name")
       lblAddress.text = grid.selectedrows(0).Cells("Address")
    end if
End Sub
