C# string grid

I have a C# DataGridView - and would like to programmatically set a cell like (row,col) = (1,1) to have a value e.g. "Hello".
Later on I would like to read the value back to a string - anybody knows howto?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you try the following:

// Modify the value in the first cell of the second row.
this.dataGridView1.Rows[1].Cells[0].Value = "new value";

// The previous line is equivalent to the following line.
this.dataGridView1[0, 1].Value = "new value";

for reading, you can use "DataGridView1(0,0).Value"

writing, here it is
DataGridView1(0,0).Value = "Hello";
