How to access underlying dataset from DataGrid control

P: n/a
What is the best way to access the Underlying data of a DataGrid. I have two SQL tables joined and display some data from both, but I want to be able to on clicking of a row bring up a form that displays all the data. I can come up with some round about ways of doing it, but is there a property of the DataGrid that will make it easier and quicker to do? Thanks.

The DataGrid has a DataSource and a DataMember property. The DataSource can
be a DataSet, a DataTable, a DataView, a DataViewManager or a component
implementing IList or IListSource. Which it is depends on how you're bound
to the data. The DataMember is a list in the DataSource (for example a
Table in the DataSet)

Hope this helps.
