Boolean Column Datagrid checkbox threestate

I have a C# form with a datagrid and in that i have used TableStyles and DataGridColumn styles. My problem is with a Boolean column. A checkbox appears in the column but when clicked it goes as grayed out just after being checked. i.e. on clicking it must toggle as checked-unchecked-checked..........................  but it is going as checked-grayed-unchecked-checked-grayed-unchecked. I want to remove the grayed out condition so that on each click it just toggles between check and uncheck and is never grayed out. I have already set the AllowNull property of TableStyle to false but still cant get it done. Please help!!!!

Set the AllowNull property of the Column Style to false (you said you already did that). This should immediately disallow the three states if the column in the underlying datasource is of a boolean type. Only in the beginning, when a new row is created, it will still show with gray. To remove this, in your data table which is the data source for the data grid, you need to set a default value to either true or false. This will solve the initial value problem as well.

I see your solutions. But just now i found something real amazing. When i bind the same DataGrid to another datatable in same dataset then the problem disappears. The dataset has been built from a XML file with 2 tables in it. The one i am using is the child table and just to test i used the parent table and then it did not show any gray state in checkbox so i guess something to do in datatable. Can nay of u think on that line ? I have already tried setting Datatable columns to AllowDBNull=False and also given a default value to each such boolean column. Also i have checked the values in run mode and found no nulls at all. No rows can be added or deleted from any datatable, they can only be modified. and i did check to not set any colors in any property and it just comes when toggling the checkbox. Think guys!!!!!!!

You need to set the default value in the dataset. Select the column and search for the default value property. This is the value for new rows, so you cannot see it in existing rows

I have set the default value in dataset too. But no luck my friend. Just cant do it. I also tried more combinations and found that whenever i bound any grid to this datatable then the grayed checkbox appears except for when i bind it to datagrid which is currently being used by the other datatable in the same dataset.

Hi guys
I have myself found the solution. I had actually done some code to remove a few columns from the dataset while it was used for generating TableStyles and GridColumnStyles. the columns were not required in the datagrid so i had removed them. now i just made them invisible by seeting their width to 0 so now all works fine.
but thanks for all your help.
