            <asp:BoundField DataField="personID" HeaderText="personID" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="personID" />

<asp:BoundField DataField="flag" HeaderText="flag" SortExpression="flag" />

<asp:CommandField DeleteText="Exclude" ShowDeleteButton="True" ButtonType="button"></asp:CommandField>//when boundfield "flag" is true, the deleteText of commandfield should be 'Exclude', otherwise, it is 'Include'

 </Columns>

    </asp:GridView>

Button btn = e.Row.Cells[2].Controls[0] as Button; //May be index 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 who knows...
if(drv["flag"].ToString() == "1")
{
    btn.Text = "Exclude";
}
else
{
   btn.Text = "Include";
 
}

This worked for me
protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

        {

            

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)

            {

                DataRowView drv = (DataRowView)e.Row.DataItem;
 

                Button btn = (Button)e.Row.Cells[2].Controls[0];
 

                if (drv["flag"].ToString() == "1")

                {

                    btn.Text = "Exclude";

                }

                else

                {

                    btn.Text = "Include";
 

                }

            }
 

        }
