You are assuming that all four columns contain data that can be converted to strings. But what if one column does not contain any data? Check your inputs first, don't assume they all contain valid data.

I'm not sure which event you are trying to handle such check. I suggest you do it in the data grid view CellContentClick or CellContentDoubleClick. There you get passed an args that contains the location of the cell to evaluate. The Convert.ToString() is actually the recommended way because it's safe. You can then do something like this

private void dataGridView1_CellContentDoubleClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
    var cell = dataGridView1[e.ColumnIndex, e.RowIndex];

    string strVal = Convert.ToString(cell.Value);

    if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(strVal))
