Adding a "TextBox" column and a "Button" column to a data grid view control in Visual Basic.NET (VB.NET) can provide users additional ways to filter data. The "DataGridViewTextBoxColumn" class allows you to add text boxes to a data grid and lets the user enter text strings. In addition, the "DataGidViewButtonColumn" class allows you to add buttons to a column which the user can press for filtering or to display information about the current row selected.
