                .CommandText = "SELECT * FROM tablename where columnid like '" & Textbox2.Text & "%" + "'"
                .CommandType = CommandType.Text
                .Connection = Connection
            End With
            Dim dt As New DataTable
            dt.Load(myCommand.ExecuteReader)
            With PelangganDataGridView
                .AutoGenerateColumns = True
                .DataSource = dt
            End With
        Catch ex As Exception
            Debug.Print("Exception: ")

wahahahaha indo punya nih.. wkwkwkwkwkw

begini gan, ada baiknya data yang ente binding ke DGV di binding melalui DataTable, itu lebih baik untuk DGV, seperti contoh yang dikasih ama si pooja, terus kalo ente ingin ketika user mengetik ketika itu juga data terfilter, maka ente harus taro itu kodenya di event KeyPress untuk TextBox dan gak perlu pake function searchdatas(), cukup kodenya si pooja letakkan di KeyPress TextBox. ok Gan?

for all : sorry i have do this with my planet language.. this is my bro from my planet :D

i already write the code like this.

Private Sub TextBox2_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox2.TextChanged
        Dim conn As SqlClient.SqlConnection
        conn = GetConnect()
        Try
            conn.Open()
            Dim myCommand As New SqlClient.SqlCommand
            With myCommand
                .CommandText = "SELECT * FROM pelanggan where nama like '" & TextBox2.Text & "%" + "'"
                .CommandType = CommandType.Text
                .Connection = conn
            End With
            Dim dt As New DataTable
            dt.Load(myCommand.ExecuteReader)
            With PelangganDataGridView
                .AutoGenerateColumns = True
                .DataSource = dt
            End With
        Catch ex As Exception
            Debug.Print("Exception: ")
            Throw ex
            conn.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

to artemix22
sorry because i can't understand your keypress only.....=(

ok try this :

Private Sub GoButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles GoButton.Click
Try
            Using conn As SqlClient.SqlConnection("put your connection string here")
                conn.Open()
                Dim myCommand As New SqlClient.SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM pelanggan where nama like '%" & TextBox2.Text & "%'", conn)
                Dim adapter As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter
                Dim dt As New DataTable
                adapter.SelectCommand = myCommand
                adapter.Fill(dt)
                With PelangganDataGridView
                    .DataSource = dt
                    .Columns(0).Width = 100 'you can set column width here
                    .Columns(0).DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter 'you can set column alignment here
                    .Columns(1).Width = 150
                    .Columns(1).DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                    'if you had 10 columns to display, then add more column to set the width and alignment just like i do above.
                End With
                myCommand.Dispose()
                conn.Close()
            End Using
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

like you see, i add that code in Event Button Click, but if you want when user type a word and DGV immediately filtering the data without clicking a button, you must add that code in TextBox2 KeyPress Event.

in first form load, didn't do anything for your DGV, it will keep your DGV clear, and when you want to clear your DGV after searching something use this code in Clear Button :

Try
            Me.PelangganDataGridView.DataSource = Nothing
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

sorry for my language before, i think you came from indonesia, i see "pelanggan" as your table name and "nama" as your column name :D, "pelanggan" mean customer in here and "nama" is name.
