I have one textbox. In which i am enter some text.
Now i want to search that text in the Datagridview.
I am also able to search that and i am going to highlight that cell.
But the problem is that i don`t want to highlight whole cell. I want to high light only search textbox text.

If i search 'abc' and if i found that in DataGridview then i am going to change the color of that cell. But i want to highlight only 'abc'. Not whole cell.

Please help me.

MSDN : TextRender.DrawText[^]

Hope it works for you,
