Could someone advise me of the simplest way to display all row information from a selected column in datagridview into a textbox?

My database consists of 4 columns but I only display one of the column in datagridview. Hence when one of the rows column is selected, I'd like to display the other rows of information from other columns into a textbox.

In my datagridview, I have displayed the column "Name".
Hence, when any of the rows' column is clicked, the information will transfer to the textbox. I've done the following code:

private void dataGridView1_CellContentClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
if (e.RowIndex > 0)
DataGridViewRow row = this.dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex];
tbx_Name.Text = row.Cells["Name"].Value.ToString();
tbx_Description.Text = row.Cells["Description"].Value.ToString();
tbx_Id.Text = row.Cells["ID"].Value.ToString();

But unfortunately, only textbox(tbx_Name) has information not the other 2.

Try this and tell me if works. Otherwise we will try another way:
Use dataset to get values, by which u bound gridview.
or dont hide columns, just set their width to 0%

My data are from SQL server and I call the data from my DBmanager. I don't manually type in the dataset inside.
