dim i as integer
for i = 0 to datagrid1.items.count - 1
  'I'll assume the 1 or 0 is located in Column # 22, you'll have to change that accordingly
  if datagrid1.items(i).Cells(22) = "1" then
    datagrid1.items(i).Cells(22) = "X"
  else
    datagrid1.items(i).Cells(22) = ""
  end if
next i

You can also do something similar in an ItemDataBound handler subroutine

using e.item instead of datagrid1.items(i) and no for loop.

Look at the ItemDataBound event.

This example uses assumes you're using ItemTemplates in your grid, but you could do it with bound columns as well:


Private Sub dg1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles dg1.ItemDataBound

       If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
            Dim lbl As Label
            Dim myValue As Integer = CType(DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "dataBaseField"), Integer)
            lbl = CType(e.Item.FindControl("lblInItemTemplateToChange"), Label)
            If myValue = 1 Then
               lbl.Text = "X"
            Else
               lbl.Text = ""
            End If
        End If

    End Sub 'dgSurveyItems_ItemDataBound

private void DataGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListItemEventArgs e)
{
   if( e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item ||
      e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem )
   {
        DataRowView drvCurrent = (DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem;

        //I'm assuming the data type is a bit
        bool oneOrZero;
        oneOrZero = (bool)drvCurrent["HasResponded"];
       
        //use casting to get a reference to whatever control you want to manipulate (label or whatever you use)
        //note: you will probably want to change the cells and/or controls index    
        //
        //Label lbl = ((Label)e.Item.Cells[0].Controls[0]);

        //manipulate your control
        if( oneOrZero )
             //lbl.Text = "X";
        else
             //lbl.Text = "O";
   }
}

Ahh you were very close. Thanks for the help.  You just left out .text.  here is the loop I ended up using.

        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To DG.Items.Count - 1
            If DG.Items(i).Cells(9).Text = 1 Then
                DG.Items(i).Cells(9).Text = "X"
            Else
                DG.Items(i).Cells(9).Text = ""
            End If
        Next i

Thanks again
