Use Custom COntrol in DataGrid

P: n/a
I have created a custom server control which is actually a Button
clicking which prompts a user with a JavaScript confirm message asking
him whether he would like to proceed or not. If he clicks *OK' in the
confirm box, he is taken to the next page. If he clicks *Cancel* in
the confirm box, he stays on that page itself.

I have a Web Form which houses a DataGrid. To edit the data in the
DataGrid, I am using <asp:EditCommandColumn/>. To delete any of the
rows in the DataGrid, I am using <asp:ButtonColumn/>.

Instead of using the conventional <asp:ButtonColumn/to delete data
from the DataGrid, I would like to use this custom server control
inside the DataGrid so that if a user clicks this custom server
control, he is first asked whether he would like to delete the data or
not.

Now how do I replace the <asp:ButtonColumn/with the custom server
control in the DataGrid?

This is what I did, and I did not have to use any custom controls:
<asp:LinkButton ID="lbDelete" runat="server" CausesValidation="False"
OnClientClick='deleteClicked=true; return confirm("Are you sure that you
want to delete the selected entry?");' CommandName="Delete"
Text="Delete"></asp:LinkButton>
