I have the following function, I want to compare the type against a tru type rather than string, how do I do this also is there a better way than is shown below

 Private Function AssignDummyValue(ByVal col As DataColumn) As Object

        Dim result As New Object

        Select Case col.DataType.ToString
            Case "System.String"
                result = col.ColumnName
            Case "System.Boolean"
                result = True
            Case "System.DateTime"
                result = DateTime.Now
            Case "System.Int16", "System.Int32", "System.Int64", "System.Decimal"
                result = 1
        End Select

        Return result

    End Function
