Capturing template button events in a datagrid???

Hi all.
I created a web form with a datagrid and I added templates to the grid with custom image buttons for row edit, delete, update, and cancel actions.
But I have not been able to capture any events for those image buttons.
If I don't use the template buttons and just use grid default edit, update, cancel button column instead, then everything works fine with DataGrid_EditCommnad, DataGrid_UpdateCommand, and DataGrid_CancelCommand events handle procedures.
Is anyone able to explain how to capture events from those template image buttons.
Thanks.

Pressing the image button in the template column would be accessable as follows (example image button id is ibtnTemplateCol)....

---.ASPX---->
<asp:ImageButton id="ibtnTemplateCol" runat="server" ImageUrl="http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/vipAccess.gif" OnClick="ibtnTemplateCol_C"></asp:ImageButton>

---Codebehind---->  'Notice the sub is NOT private
Sub ibtnTemplateCol_C(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs)
        Dim sWorld As String = "From iButton in Template Column"
        Response.Write(sWorld)
End Sub

Have fun,
Dante

using ItemCommand event,

--- ASPX ---
<asp:datagrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" >
<Columns>
     <asp:TemplateColumn>
          <ItemTemplate>
               <asp:ImageButton AlternateText="Delete this item" CausesValidation="False" CommandName="Delete" ImageUrl="~/images/delete.gif" Runat="server"></asp:ImageButton>
          </ItemTemplate>
     </asp:TemplateColumn>
</Columns>
</asp:datagrid>

--- ASPX.VB --
Sub DataGrid1_ItemCommand( sender As Object, e As DataGridCommandEventArgs )

     If ( e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem )

          If ( e.CommandName = "Delete ")
               ' the image button is pressed..
          End If

     End If
 End Sub
