I have this code in a Details view on my page.

<asp:BoundField DataField="txt_BUS_EMAIL" HeaderText="txt_BUS_EMAIL" SortExpression="txt_BUS_EMAIL" Visible='<%# Eval("txt_BUS_EMAIL").ToString().Equals() %>' />

When I go to run it, I get his error:

Databinding expressions are only supported on objects that have a DataBinding event. System.Web.UI.WebControls.BoundField does not have a DataBinding event.

Please advise if any of you have encountered this before!

Thank you in advance!

i would suggest two things here:

1. use a template field
2. make a method GetStatus in your code behind that returns true or false, call it in template field as <%#GetStatus()%>
