Use below code:

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    'Creating the columns
    Dim IDColumn As New DataGridViewColumn
    Dim ClientNameColumn As New DataGridViewColumn
    Dim AmountColumn As New DataGridViewColumn
    'Setting the Properties for the IDColumn
    IDColumn.Name = "ID"
    IDColumn.ValueType = GetType(Integer)
    IDColumn.HeaderText = "ID"
    IDColumn.CellTemplate = New DataGridViewTextBoxCell
    'Setting the Properties for the ClientNameColumn
    ClientNameColumn.Name = "ClientName"
    ClientNameColumn.ValueType = GetType(String)
    ClientNameColumn.HeaderText = "Name"
    ClientNameColumn.CellTemplate = New DataGridViewTextBoxCell
    'Setting the Properties for the AmountColumn
    AmountColumn.Name = "Amount"
    AmountColumn.ValueType = GetType(Decimal)
    AmountColumn.HeaderText = "Amount"
    AmountColumn.CellTemplate = New DataGridViewTextBoxCell
    With dtgRecords
      'Adding the Column to the DataGridView
      'Making the DataGridView ReadOnly since we don't want the user to edit the grid at the moment
      .ReadOnly = True
      'allowing only one row to be selected at a time
   .MultiSelect = False
   'restricting user capabilities on the DataGridView
   .AllowUserToAddRows = False
   .AllowUserToDeleteRows = False
    End With
  End Sub

Is your textbox is part of datagrid, than i may have ideas otherwise i'm not sure how onkeypress will work for it where your control does not know what the data has to populate how many columns are rows(that is possible).

there is one way that when user press a key on textbox, u serached data(or find that data from some source file and format it)but not sure immidiate reflection of it to datagrid

see this http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h66cfhct.aspxarticcle if it is onkeypress on datagrid

hope its clear to you

Try this way:

private void Btn1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  //setting column count
  dataGridView1.ColumnCount = 1;
  dataGridView1.Columns[0].HeaderText = "column1";
  //adding rows
