use this:

For Each r As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
            Dim chkSel As CheckBox = DirectCast(r.FindControl("chkSelect"), CheckBox)
            chkSel.Checked = True
Next

To be on the safe side, first make sure that a control has been found because you will get a NullReferenceException otherwise




Protected Sub CheckBox2_CheckedChanged1(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Dim ctrl as Object
        For Each r As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
           ctrl = r.FindControl("CheckBox1")
           If IsNothing(ctrl) = False Then
              CType(ctrl, Checkbox).Checked = True
           End If
        Next

End Sub

change this
(DirectCast(r.FindControl("CheckBox1"), CheckBox)).Checked = True


to

DirectCast(r.FindControl("CheckBox1"), CheckBox).Checked = True
