}
private void GridGroupingControl1OnTableControlCellDoubleClick(object sender, GridTableControlCellClickEventArgs e)
{
    var window = new Form1();
    window.Show();
    window.BringToFront();
}
'Form loads...
AddHandler gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCellDoubleClick, AddressOf GridGroupingControl1OnTableControlCellDoubleClick
