VB.net datagrid ButtonColumn for VB.net windows app

I am working with a datagrid and I am trying to add a button column.  I can not seem to find the buttoncolumn for a datagrid.  I am not sure if this is because I have only VB.net studio or if it because you can only use a button column for web apps.  

Here is my current code.

        Dim ts As DataGridTableStyle
        ts = New DataGridTableStyle
        ts.MappingName = DS1.Tables(0).ToString()
      Dim col1 As New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        With col1
            .MappingName = "StockNum"
            .HeaderText = "Stock #"
            .Width = 80
        End With

        Dim col2 As New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        With col2
            .MappingName = "Desc"
            .HeaderText = "Description"
            .Width = 80
        End With

        Dim col3 As New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        With col3
            .MappingName = "AskingPrice"
            .HeaderText = "Asking Price"
            .Width = 80
            .Format = "c"
            .Alignment = HorizontalAlignment.Right
        End With

        ts.GridColumnStyles.AddRange(New DataGridColumnStyle() {col1, col2, col3, col4, col5, col6, col7})
        With grdInventory
            .DataSource = DS1.Tables(0)
        End With

I want to add a column with  buttons for my first column that will bring up a details page.
