CButtonColumn and Font Awesome icons

I was looking for a way to use Font Awsome icons instead of the default images in a CGridView -> CButtonColumn. Perhaps this will be useful to someone.

Font Awsome Version 4.0.0

        'template'=>'{update} {view} {delete}',
        'buttons'=>array (
            'update'=> array(
                'label' => '<i class="fa fa-edit"></i>',
                                'imageUrl' => false,
                'label' => '<i class="fa fa-search"></i>',
                                'imageUrl' => false,
                'label' => '<i class="fa fa-trash-o"></i>',
                                'imageUrl' => false,

Font awesome extension

For those who do not use Bootstrap, this could be a useful extension: fontawesome extension.

If you use Bootstrap there's already an icon option

Thanks for the tip for the regular CButtonColumn. Nevertheless, if you use TbButtonColumn and have FontAwesome enabled, you can specify 'icon'=>'icon-edit', etc.
