How to move to gridview row to selected search option

I have a gridview that binds to a dataset tables.  My question is I would like to have a search box to go to the searched dataitemkey.  Just wondering what the code would look like it the dataitemkey is wo_number, and they will search for workorder and I want to have that workorder goes to the page that the item is bound to within the gridview.

usually when you type something in the text box
and click search , a code against the DB will be executed and a data set will return and be bounded with the gridview

you may also sort the gridview based on the coloum name

you could build a textual representation of javascript either json or a hashtable, when the page loads it 'loads' it onto the client browser (Im assuming this sounds like an intranet type site) and this 'object' contains all wo_number's and the details url location, then your text box doesnt do anything server side, it just scans the object for the wo_number and then loads the relevant value which could be a built up url to the wo_number details page etc. This is easier than doing the web service search thing provided you don't have millions of wo_number items... a bit of jquery and autocomplete goodness and you're cooking with gas...
please dont ask for sample code as you'll learn more by doing/searching for it yourself.

good luck

ps if this is a public facing site then please note my solution will need tweaking and you'll seriously need to look into caching.
