Something like...

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string value = textBox2.Text;
            int index = textBox1.Text.IndexOf(value);
            if (index != -1)
            {
                // it was found...highlight it:
                textBox1.SelectionStart = index;
                textBox1.SelectionLength = value.Length;
                textBox1.Focus();
            }
            else
                MessageBox.Show(value, "Not Found");
        }
