Add button column to RDLC report file?

Hi,

I've got a ReportViewer that loads a certain report.  I would like to add a column to this report that will hold a "View Item" button.  When this button is clicked, it will open a new window that will display the full record from this row in the report.

I found out that it is possible to add a hyperlink column to a report, but I would prefer to use a button so that I have access to an Button_Click method where I can do a few other things in the code.

Is it possible to add a button like this to an rdlc report file?  If so, what is the best way to accomplish this?

Thank you in advance.

Environment: C#.NET 4.0, Webforms

I ended up just adding a link to the report column as described here:

I would have preferred to be able to use a button, however, so that query string variables would not have had to be used.
