One way to do this would be to use the SelectedRows property of the DataGridView and when it is double clicked you could pass this to your next form. For example, if I had two Forms (Form1 and Form2) and Form1 contained a DataGridView I could set it up so that when the DataGridView is double clicked and one or more rows was selected I could pass these to Form2 via a property.

So, on Form2 you could have the following property:

    Public Property SelectedRows As DataGridViewSelectedRowCollection

This would appear just below the Public Class Form2 line.

Then in Form1, for the DoubleClick event of the DataGridView you could do the following:

    Private Sub DataGridView1_DoubleClick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DoubleClick

        If DataGridView1.SelectedRows.Count > 0 Then

            Dim newForm As New Form2
            newForm.SelectedRows = DataGridView1.SelectedRows

        End If

    End Sub

Then to read from the SelectedRows property on Form2 you could use code similar too:


Which will return the value of the first row, second column.

Private Sub TBL_TEAMSBindingNavigatorSaveItem_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles TBL_TEAMSBindingNavigatorSaveItem.Click

End Sub

Private Sub Main_Frm_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    'TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'FootBallDataSet.TBL_TEAMS' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.

End Sub

Private Sub TBL_TEAMSDataGridView_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles TBL_TEAMSDataGridView.Click

    If TBL_TEAMSDataGridView.SelectedRows.Count Then
        Dim Schedule_Form As New Schedule_Frm
        Schedule_Form.SelectRows = TBL_TEAMSDataGridView.SelectedRows
    End If
