Hi Experts.  I have a datagridview with a column of buttons that all start off with the text "Off".  

I want to be able to change the text to "On" when the button is pressed and back to "Off when pressed again.    So some will say "Off"  and Some "On".   Please could someone help with an example of how this could be done?  

I will also need to get the condition of the button later, whether its text is "Off" or "On".   Help there would also be appreciated.    Many Thanks for the help

Every control has a Tag property. You can store True or False in this property to indicate current state

Button1_Click:
Button1.Tag = Not Button1.Tag

If Button1.Tag Then
    Button1.Text = "On"
Else
    Button1.Text = "Off"
End If

Thanks for the reply Codecruiser, but how do I get the button click of the button in the particular row of the datagridview.     I can see how to do it with a normal button but I need to do it with the individual buttons in the datagridview column.  Thanks again.

Ah sorry I missed the datagridview part. You will need to handle the CellClick event of the grid and if clicked cell is button cell then set cell's value to On and Off based on existing value

Something like this

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles dataGridView1.CellClick

        ' Ignore clicks that are not on button cells.  
        If e.ColumnIndex = YourButtonColumnIndex Then
            If datagridView1.Item(e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex).Value.Tostring = "On" Then
               datagridView1.Item(e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex).Value = "Off"
            Else
               datagridView1.Item(e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex).Value = "On"
            End If
        End If

        ' Retrieve the task ID.
        Dim taskID As Int32 = CInt(dataGridView1(0, e.RowIndex).Value)
    End Sub
