I am using VS 2005 to develop a Windows application in VB.Net.

How do I add a button control column to a datagrid so that I can handle the button click event when it is selected by a user?

In VB.NET 2005 the DataGridView is the replacement for the DataGrid (although the latter is still available if you prefer it).  So far as providing the button control in the DataGridView is concerned, see this

As to handling the click event, see this

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.datagridview.cellcontentclick.aspx

Unlike with some other types of columns, a buttoncolumn will react to the click event immediately.  The DataGridViewCellEventArgs expose a .ColumnIndex property (so you can determine if it is a buttoncolumn) and, if it is, also a .RowIndex property (so you can identify the record concerned) and pass that to any sub/function that you want to run on the button_click.

If you really do want to use a DataGrid, rather than a DataGridView, have a look at this
