i want to search data in a gridview.i want to search by name in that gridview

1 solution

use search string for filtering,
if I have text-box namely (txtName) where I am entering my search string
& datafield name in datagrid is dgName then

create string as " dgName like ' " + trim(txtName.text) + " %'"
then create a dataview with data source from Datagrid
use dataview.rowfilter command & pass created string to this
then again bind same dataview to grid
