The following code displays all the file names.
1.How to pick the files name having the format as xxxxx_yyyy.pdf
here the xxxxx is being entered from Textbox t1.
2.What ever the resultset comes should be added to Gridview1.

DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo(MapPath("Files/"));
        FileInfo[] files = dir.GetFiles();
        ArrayList listItems = new ArrayList();
        foreach (FileInfo info in files)
        {
            listItems.Add(info);
            Response.Write(info.ToString());
        }

FileInfo[] files = dir.GetFiles(string.Format("{0}_yyyy.pdf", t1.Text));

if you don't care about characters after the underscore then use:

FileInfo[] files = dir.GetFiles(string.Format("{0}_*.pdf", t1.Text));
