    Hello Michael,

    Please test the following modification:
    protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
        GridDataItem item = e.Item as GridDataItem; 
        if (item != null
            LinkButton button = item["ActivateColumn"].Controls[0] as LinkButton; 
            button.Text = "xxxxx"
            button.CommandName = "XXX"

    I hope this helps.
