OKay so I have a gridview with a few columns in.
Want I want to to is to look at one of the hidden columns in the gridview (or object datasource) and evaluate its value and then set an image template field of that gridview depending upon the value of that column.

How would I do this?

Trap the RowDataBound of your GridView, then find your control in e.Row.

In VB.NET it would look like this... i'm sure you can translate to C#

    Private Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
        e.Row.FindControl("").yourproperty = ....
    End Sub

I think in C# it should look like this:
((ImageButton) e.Row.FindControl("ImageButton1")).ImageUrl = "http://somesite.com/images/my_picture.jpg"
