You can delete rows by first selecting the rows and then pressing the Delete key. If you may want to confirm the deletion with the user before deleting them. You can do this with the UserDeletingRow event:

Private Sub DataGridView1_UserDeletingRow( _
       ByVal sender As Object, _
       ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms. _
       DataGridViewRowCancelEventArgs) _
       Handles DataGridView1.UserDeletingRow
        If (Not e.Row.IsNewRow) Then
            Dim response As DialogResult = _
            MessageBox.Show( _
            "Are you sure you want to delete this row?", _
            "Delete row?", _
            MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, _
            MessageBoxIcon.Question, _
            If (response = DialogResult.No) Then
                e.Cancel = True
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

Thank you for quick response.if you have time i would like to ask you how do i save the changes in table ? i mean i want to delete row not only from datagridview but also from table at the same time.

Thanks , I got it to work.
