I have tried to get an answer to this but so far no help has been able to do what I want it to.

I have this piece of code, which is meant to look at the selected row and output it's columns into the corresponding text boxes.

 private void DataGridView01_SelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (DataGridView01.SelectedRows.Count > 0)
       personIDTextBox.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[0].Value.ToString();
       comboBox1.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[1].Value.ToString();
       Txt_FirstName.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[2].Value.ToString();
       mIDDLENAMETextBox.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[3].Value.ToString();
       sURNAMETextBox.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[4].Value.ToString();
       cITYTextBox.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[5].Value.ToString();
       eMAILTextBox.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedRows[0].Cells[6].Value.ToString();

When I launch the program, I get no errors but it doesn't output the data into the textbox. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

It is the most basic thing you need to learn to code in VS. In short it means that the event name, here DataGridView01_SelectionChanged is connected to the event. To do so one can either use code or one inserts it into the correct slot of the events pane of the property tab. Select the DataGridView, open the events pane (the one with the flash) and locate the SelectionChanged event! Here insert the name of the event and you are done.

(I only have the German versions of VS installed..)

The result is reflected in the form_designer.cs file and it is the same thing (in reverse) as double clicking that spot and then filling in the generated code stub..

Controls have many events; one is the default event and this can be generated by double clicking the control itself in the designer. But eventually you will need all 3 ways to generate and hook up the events, (as well as sometimes removing them.)

I use a slightly different approach when trying to get data from a datagridview.

Try doing personIDTextBox.Text = DataGridView01.SelectedCells[0].Value.ToString();

but instead of the event being on selection change, switch to CellClick and change the property of the the datagridview row selection property to full row select. after that you can change the SelectedCell[0] number to match whichever cell you want

If you want to display the datagridview selected rows into corresponding textboxes, fine the below steps ,

Step 1: 1. Change the DataGridView Selection mode to FullRowSelect in Datagridview property. 2. Create the cell click event in Data grid view using property. enter image description here 3. Write the below code and test it, It may helpful

private void DataGridView01_CellClick(object sender,DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
if (DataGridView01.Rows.Count > -1)
comboBox1.Text = DataGridView01.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[1].Value.ToString();
Txt_FirstName.Text = DataGridView01.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[2].Value.ToString();
 mIDDLENAMETextBox.Text = DataGridView01.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[3].Value.ToString();
sURNAMETextBox.Text = DataGridView01.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[4].Value.ToString();
cITYTextBox.Text = DataGridView01.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[5].Value.ToString();
eMAILTextBox.Text = DataGridView01.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[6].Value.ToString();
