I am binding a asp.net gridview to a dataset in a webform using vb.net.    I am able to populate the grid expect the first column in the grid is a checkbox that I have placed in a template field.   That value that I want to display in the check box column is a true/false value stored as a bit in the SQL Server database.

I have tried all of the examples found here and either none of the check boxes are checked when they should be and no error is returned.

If have tried the following: (isApproved is the column name in the dataset)

.......Checked='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "isApproved") %>'/> ... No errors returned but no check boxes checked either

.......Checked='<%#If(Eval("IsApproved").ToString(), True, False)%>' ... No errors returned but no check boxes checked either


in the GridView1_RowDataBound event I tried.... and got the error "Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Parameter name: index "

...If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
             Dim chk As Boolean = Convert.ToBoolean((Me.GridView1.DataKeys  e.Row.RowIndex).Value.ToString()))
            'Find Check Box Now
            Dim chkBox As CheckBox = DirectCast(e.Row.FindControl("AcctApproved"), CheckBox)
            chkBox.Checked = chk
        End If

Any help would be greatly appreciated

hi.. try this example

ASPX:

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
    <Columns>
        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="ID">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("id") %>'></asp:Label>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateField>
        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Staff">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" Checked='<%# Eval("staff") %>' />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateField>
    </Columns>
</asp:GridView>
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" onclick="Button1_Click" Text="Button" />

Code behind:

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string conStr = @"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=E:\website\w2\App_Data\Database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True";
    SqlConnection con1 = new SqlConnection(conStr);
    con1.Open();
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT id,staff FROM staff_details  ", con1);
    adapter.Fill(ds);
    GridView1.DataSource = ds;
    GridView1.DataBind();
    con1.Close();
}

you can give a try to the below markup too.
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Serial Number" SortExpression="SERIALNUMBER" >
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" Checked='<%# iif(Bind("IsApproved")=0,"False","True") %>' />
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>

hope this helps.
