It depends.
This is not a well formulated question at all. Nobody will be able to help you, since we have no means to know:
- in what you want to search
- how you want to search
- what you want to search
- what is your platform
- what you want to do with your results
- ...
and several other thigs.
So, please elaborate your question.

What is "search the file in the database" meaning exactly?

Solution 1

"You should perform a search."

That is both:
  • Have you searched for, yet (I suppose you may find many examples, just Google for)?
  • On button click your program should search for whatever is set in (possibly) another control, inside for instance, a file, or a string (you didn't provide enough details).

Solution 2

control:- 1 textbox, 1 button, 1 datagridview

write code searchbtn_click event

sqlconnection con=new sqlconnection("Data Source=,; Initial Catalog=database name;uid=sa; pwd=password");;
da = new sqlDataAdapter("select LSTinIPaddress , LSTOutIPaddress from tablename where computername='" + textbox1.text + "'", con);
                        ds = new DataSet();
                        dataGridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables[0].DefaultView;

This is only a sample...plz impliment this code for search file from database...

i think is this possible...

Ask normally to get answers you want!
Zoltán Zörgő 25-Sep-12 9:03am
No one is giving the proper answer, because you do not ask properly :(
Zoltán Zörgő 25-Sep-12 9:12am
I don't - even if it is my free choice to do so. Believe me, I would help you, but I still can't see what you want - in technical, programming terms. Please, be aware, that I can not read your mind.

So, you have a table in an sql server database on a server. That table contains at least three fields (ComputerName,LSTinIPaddress,LSTOutIPaddress). You have a WindwsForms application that has a form with a field, where you enter a computer name, and you want the two associated IPAddress fields as return. Is this correct? You have a working connection string to the database?
