    You can access the template column by using on InitializeRow event:

     protected void UltraWebGrid1_InitializeRow(object sender, Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.RowEventArgs e)
            //Accessing the Template Column Named: [MyTemplateCol]
            Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.TemplatedColumn col = (Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.TemplatedColumn)UltraWebGrid1.Columns.FromKey("MyTemplateCol");
            Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.CellItem item = (Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.CellItem)col.CellItems[e.Row.Index];
            //this will provide you with the object of Link button in the Template column
            LinkButton lnBtn = (LinkButton)item.FindControl("linkview");       


    and if you want to access the template column on the button click then you should go for the following code snippet:

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    //access the template column
    Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.TemplatedColumn col = ((Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.TemplatedColumn)(UltraWebGrid1.Columns.FromKey("MyTemplateCol")));

    Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.CellItem item = ((Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.CellItem)(col.CellItems[0]));

    //taking object of template Item
    LinkButton lnBttn = ((LinkButton)(item.FindControl("linkview")));      

    Hope it helps you. Thank you.
