Hello Andreas,

Yes, it is possible to display the content of a DataField inside the command button. You can do this in the CellFormatting event handler. Consider the following code snippet:

Private Sub radGridView1_CellFormatting(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As CellFormattingEventArgs) 
    Dim column As GridViewDataColumn = TryCast(e.CellElement.ColumnInfo, GridViewDataColumn) 
    If TypeOf e.CellElement.ColumnInfo Is GridViewCommandColumn AndAlso column.DataField = "Action" Then 
        Dim button As RadButtonElement = TryCast(e.CellElement.Children(0), RadButtonElement) 
        button.Text = column.DataField 
    End If 
End Sub 

Let us know if you have further questions.

Cheers,
Jack

DataField is not a member of Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewDataColumn ?!

Hello Nicolai,

The original answers in this thread are quite old now. For up to date information on the GridViewCommandColumn, please see the documentation on this column type that can be found here.

I hope you find this helpful but let me know if you need more information
