DTCs Within a Grid?

I have learned how to put hyperlinks in a grid, but how do you put DTCs in a grid?!?  

I have an Orders grid (showing the following fields: OrderID, CustomerID, and OrderDate) and would like a "Delete Order" DTC button in each row...I want to write an event handler for the button's onclick event, which will not only delete the record corresponding to that row, but also other records with the same OrderID located in another database table (OrderDetails table).

A DTC will output its HTML as a string if you call its Display routine with the parameter (true).

Inside a table cell, put =txtMyTextboxDTC.display(true);

[assuming that you have a textboxDTC called txtMyTextboxDTC, of course!]

However, this is not quite that simple - because then you get TWO versions of the textbox, one inside the grid and one outside.  You can 'hide' the text box - but then both versions dissappear.  What you need is a way to unhide it, get the html, then hide it again - all within the grid.

To this end, have a look at:
