As i am not a coder i am a learner.
I am making a software based on winform which will take data from windows forms and saves in sql server.
I dont just want to save but also want to retrive the data in a very usefull manner. In a table form. have heard about ado.net and grid view and data binding source and data binding navigator. I am just confused which to select from all. I want a editable table which can have a search box which will search the database and result will be viewd in a table. So i dont want you to give all the coding or not i am not asking you to build the whole project. I just want you to give me hint from which technique i can start. I dont want any lacking in my software. For example Starting from datagrid and after months of working i will found that seacrh facilty is not available in that then it will a total loss. (its just an example to seacrh. May data grid will have search option or we can implement it) i just want you to tell me which is the best one to start with when i have to retreive the data from sql server in user friendly manner i mean data table like something
thanks in advance.

Head over to MSDN and look at the forms over data series of videos.
 
These are a great learning resource. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/bb798022.aspx[^]
 
Also, although you want c#, there are more (and different topics) if you search for VB, it will at least give you an idea on which controls and classes to be using. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio//bb466226.aspx[^]
