>>How do I determine whether a checkbox in my datagrid is checked or not?<<
If the column is a boolean column, you can just cast the object returned by the indexer to a bool and use it.
 
If CType(dataGridTopics(row, column),Boolean) Then
     MessageBox.Show("I am true")
else  
     MessageBox.Show("I am false")
End If

I used a table style and added my checkbox column as a DataGridBoolColumn.  I actually have mine mapped to a datasource, but this is a boolean column so no need to Ctype it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i found this code for checking if a checkbox is checked or not.

Private Sub GetSelections_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GetSelections.Click
        Dim rowCount As Integer = 0
        Dim gridSelections As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()

        'Loop through each DataGridItem, and determine which CheckBox controls
        'have been selected.
        Dim DemoGridItem As DataGridItem
        For Each DemoGridItem In DemoGrid.Items

            Dim myCheckbox As CheckBox = CType(DemoGridItem.Cells(0).Controls(1), CheckBox)
            If myCheckbox.Checked = True Then
                rowCount += 1
                gridSelections.AppendFormat("The checkbox for {0} was selected<br>", _
                                            DemoGrid.DataKeys(DemoGridItem.ItemIndex).ToString())
            End If
        Next
        gridSelections.Append("<hr>")
        gridSelections.AppendFormat("Total number selected is: {0}<br>", rowCount.ToString())
        ResultsInfo.Text = gridSelections.ToString()

End Sub

Now i want to know how to add that checkbox to my datagrid.

       Dim oTS As New DataGridTableStyle
        Dim oCol As New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        Dim oBoolCol as New DataGridBoolColumn

        oTS.MappingName = "MyDataSource"  'MappingName maps fields in your query to fields in the grid.

'A Field In select statement
        With oCol
            .MappingName = "Priority"
            .HeaderText = "Priority"
            .Width = 25
        End With
        oTS.GridColumnStyles.Add(oCol)

'Another Field in select statement
        With oCol
            .MappingName = "EquipReqID"
            .HeaderText = "ERID"
            .Width = 50
        End With
        oTS.GridColumnStyles.Add(oCol)

'My Bool not in in select statement, do not set mapping name
        With oBoolCol
            .HeaderText = "ERID"
            .Width = 50
        End With
        oTS.GridColumnStyles.Add(oBoolCol)

dgEquipRequest.TableStyles.Add(oTS)  'When this datasource is used for this grid, this tablestyle will be used for what you see in the grid.
