I really don't use the DGV, but I'll see if I can help you .  I would imagine that there's some kind of method to update or refresh the DGV.  When the new value is added from the popup form, have it also update the DGV on the main form.

Let me know if that helps.

By the way, when you make changes on the popup form:  is the database being update and you just can't figure out how to get the DGV to refresh, or are you even getting the database updated?

Here's a similar post by someone else that may help:

i just want to update only the combobox of the datagridview ...
on the popup form i have an update button tha saves the new data in the dataset.
.keep in mind that the combobox has the same dataset...
if close the dgv and open it again i have the new data in the combobox...but i need to accomplish this at runtime

            MyDataGridView.EndEdit()
            Me.MyTableAdapter.Fill(MyDataSet.MyTable)
            MyDataGridView.Refresh()

Yeah, that looks good to me.  Besides, if it works it works, right?

It might be more ideal if there were a way that you could just update what you needed instead of filling the entire thing again, but as long as performance is ok then I certainly wouldn't which I'm sure it's not then I wouldn't worry about that at all.
