C# Question

Copy DataGridView values to TextBox

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?

HOOKING UP EVENTS:

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.

enter image description here

(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.)
