right now i have this as my hyperlynk  in my gridview
   If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            Dim lnkFile As HyperLink = CType(e.Row.FindControl("lnkFile"), HyperLink)
            lnkFile.NavigateUrl = "livereg.aspx?id=" + DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "ID").ToString() + "&contentType=" + DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "timeevent").ToString()+"&track="+ DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "track").ToString()
        End If

what i need is to create an statment somehow that if  DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "morning").ToString()  = true   ( bit data type)   then
image1.visible=true     (image1 is asp image)
lnkFile.visible=true  (inkfile  is a hyperlink)

Perhaps you could add an <asp:hiddenField> to your gridview... populate it using with your "morning" field... i.e:

      <asp:HiddenField id="hdnValue" value='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "morning") %>'

Then inside your OnRowDataBound event, use FindControl to get the value of hdnValue and do your visible thing to your image.

try this ..
<asp:hyperlink id=lnkFile runat="server" Visible='<%# Ctype(Eval("morning"), Boolean) %>' ></asp:HyperLink>

Actually, Rejojohny's solution is much more elegant than what I had proposed.  If you only need to hide an image, do this:

<asp:image imageurl="~/yourImagehere.jpg" id=lnkFile runat="server" Visible='<%# Ctype(Eval("morning"), Boolean) %>'  </asp:HyperLink>

If for some reason you need to do more processing other than showing/hiding an image, here's how the OnRowDataBound method would look:
protected void gvTest_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) {

   //make sure we are dealing with a data row and not a header/footer
   if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow) {

      //find the hidden control inside the row
      HiddenField hdnValue = (HiddenField)e.Row.FindControl("hdnValue");

      //now use hdnValue.Value to determine what this row's hidden value is
      //Set to "morning"
      if (bool.Parse(hdnValue.Value) == true) {
         //find the imageControl inside the row (make sure you've assigned an ID to it and use it below)
         Image img = (Image)e.Row.FindControl("ImageID");
         img.Visible = true;
      } else {
         //find the hyperlink control inside the row
         HyperLink hlnk = (HyperLink)e.Row.FindControl("hyperLinkID");
         hlnk.Visible = true;

Hope it helps :)

actuall for the image it has to be ..
<asp:image imageurl="~/yourImagehere.jpg" id=lnkFile runat="server" Visible='<%# NOT Ctype(Eval("morning"), Boolean) %>'  </asp:HyperLink>

because in his code he has that condition in the "else" part of the "if" condition and so i assume if value = false, lnkfile.visible = true and vice versa ..
