I've tried this.But it gives me an error.

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Search ser = new Search();
           DataSet drr= ser.GetBookDetail(int.Parse(textBox3.Text));
            DataTable myDataTable = drr.Tables["table1"];

But this is not working.

private void dataGridView1_CellEnter(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
            LinkLabel link = new LinkLabel();
           dataGridView2.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Value = link;

I just made this code based on what I understood from your post.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace DataGridViewTest
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        private DataGridView dataGridView1 = new DataGridView();
        private LinkLabel link1 = new LinkLabel();
        private LinkLabel link2 = new LinkLabel();

        public Form1()

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            dataGridView1.CellContentClick += new DataGridViewCellEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellContentClick);

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

            link1.Text = "http://yahoo.com/";
            link2.Text = "http://hotmail.com/";

            DataGridViewTextBoxColumn col1 = new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn();
            col1.Name = "column1";
            col1.HeaderText = "REGULAR COLUMN";
            col1.Width = 100;

            DataGridViewLinkColumn col2 = new DataGridViewLinkColumn();
            col2.Name = "column2";
            col2.HeaderText = "LINK COLUMN";
            col2.Width = 200;

            dataGridView1.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value = "Hello";     // Row 0 Cell 0   Regular Column
            dataGridView1.Rows[0].Cells[1].Value = link1.Text;  // Row 0 Cell 1   Link Column
            dataGridView1.Rows[1].Cells[1].Value = link2.Text;  // Row 1 Cell 1   Link Column

            dataGridView1.Top = 100;
            dataGridView1.Left = 100;
            dataGridView1.Height = 200;
            dataGridView1.Width = 400;

        void dataGridView1_CellContentClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
            if (e.ColumnIndex == 1)
                // Open the link in the default browser
