do you want to use from button for searching(push button)?
or when you enter a keyword in the TextBox(TextBox Text Changed)?

for using button:
not can write a query for searching.for example:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. select * from tb where like '%txtText%'
for entering keyword:
you can use from TextChanged event of the TextBox.and then use from Select method in the DataTable that you fill.for example:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. private void txtSearch_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
  2. {
  3.   DataTable dtTemp = dt.Select("name like '%txtText%'");
  4.   dbGrid.DataSource= dtTemp;
  5. }

What I want is when I choose a date OR enter a word in the textbox, I want my button to search it and bring the records.
