Asp.Net: datagrid with buttoncolumn and confirm

Hello experts,
in my Asp.Net ( web application
I'm using in one web page the following definitions and code:
<asp:datagrid id="dgTest" ...>
   <asp:ButtonColumn Text="Close" ButtonType="PushButton" HeaderText="Close"
   <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="myKey" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"
                        ItemStyle-Width="15%" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center">
          <asp:Label id="lblMyKey" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "myKey") %>' runat="server" />
    Private Sub dgTest_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, _
              ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles dgTest.ItemDataBound
        Select Case e.Item.ItemType
            Case ListItemType.AlternatingItem, ListItemType.Item
                Dim itemCell0 As TableCell = e.Item.Cells(0)
                Dim strItemNr As String = CType(e.Item.FindControl("lblMyKey"), Label).Text
                Dim closeButton As ButtonColumn
                ' till here everything seems to be OK
                'How-to code the following lines:
                   = "javascript:return confirm('Are you sure you want to close item \'" & strItemNr & "\'?')"
        End Select
    End Sub
The code above is intended to ask a confirmation query for each datagrid item.
But I couldn't make it work.

If anyone knows a solution please supply appropriate [snippet] information.

   Thank you very much!

Hi HStrix,
try this
Dim btn as Button = CType(e.Item.Cells(0).Controls(0),Button) 'check if this is the 0-bazed or 1-based control
btn.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:return confirm('Are you sure you want to close item \'" & strItemNr & "\'?');"
