Stored Proc. checkbox parameter in gridview

Last Modified: 2015-03-22
I have an editable gridview with a checkbox used to put a product in "Active" or "Inactive" mode.
The DB fields is a BIT type value.
When I try to update my gridview the checkbox does not update the field value??
Here is my code in the gridview:

<ItemTemplate><%#IIf(Eval("Active"), "<font color='lime'><i>Yes</i></font>", "<font color='red'><i>No</i></font>")%></ItemTemplate>
<asp:CheckBox ID="chk1" runat="server" Width="40px" Text='<%# ReplaceBoolValue(Eval("Active"))%>' Checked='<%# Eval("Active") %>' EnableViewState="true" />

Here is my parameter in code behind:

 myCom.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Active", SqlDbType.Bit)
        If CType(GridProducts.Rows(e.RowIndex).FindControl("chk1"), CheckBox).Checked = True Then
            myCom.Parameters("@Active").Value = 1
            myCom.Parameters("@Active").Value = 0
        End If

All other control inthe gridview are returning the correct values, except this checkbox.
Can you tell me what is wrong with my code?
