"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Code behind is best for this.  I'm a VB person so this might not be EXACTLY right :0)

    protected void myGvRowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) {
        switch (e.Row.RowType) {
            case DataControlRowType.DataRow:
                Label myControl = e.row.findcontrol("myControlIDHere");
                if (Convert.ToBoolean(e.row.dataitem("myDataBaseColumn"))) {
                    myControl.Visible = false;

i am looking for something like this

<%# ConvertBoolToYesNo(Eval("YOUR_FIELD"))%>
That's what my code is doing.

You cannot do your approach in-line because the ID value of the DIV and IMAGE will change for every row, so you get javascript errors.  The code behind method is the cleanest and most reliable way to work with the correct ID values for each row.
