SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["ConnectionString"]);

            string strConn = "Data Source=USER-PC;Initial Catalog=PIWCDB;User ID=sa;Password=mike";
            string strSQL = "select Dedicationid, Surname, Othername from tblDedication where surname LIKE '" + txtSurname.Text + "%" + "' order by Surname";


            SqlDataAdapter dataAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, strConn);
            SqlCommandBuilder commandBuilder = new SqlCommandBuilder(dataAdapter);

            // Populate a new data table and bind it to the BindingSource.
            DataTable table = new DataTable();
            table.Locale = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;

            string expression = "[Dedicationid] like '%" + this.txtDedicationno.Text + "%'";

            DataRow[] filteredRows = table.Select(expression);
            if (filteredRows.Any())
                table = filteredRows.CopyToDataTable();

                this.dgvSearchname.Visible = true;

                dgvSearchname.Visible = false;

            // you can make it grid readonly.
            dgvSearchname.ReadOnly = true;

            dgvSearchname.DataSource = table;

when the DGV is visible, you need to make the textbox hide ??

It's not clear..

if i am getting right then just make your grid visible false on page load & then execute your code(Show hide grid according result from data base)

That is what the OP has said he is doing. But other controls are appearing in front of the DGV when he makes it visible, despite having used .BringToFront

yes, But i am saying to make it invisible in page load it means by default(Not in design, by coding) & not in the function or event so that program will not wait for any other event or function call to hide grid.
