Hello,

It seems that the value for the CheckBox control is generated with Eval(), which is used as evaluating expression. It provides one-way binding for the control. Try using Bind() for the value of the Checked property.

<asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox11" runat="server" Checked='<%# Bind("active") %>' />

Let me know if this approach is working for you.

Hello,

Thank you for writing back.

When trying to insert a new record the RadGrid opens an edit form and tries to bind the values in it with the values from the datasource. As this data is not existent in insert mode the returned values are null. The RadGrid is trying to convert null to the corresponding data type for each column which results in the mentioned exception.

In order to avoid this you need to set a default value for the columns where two-way data binding is set and their values need to be updated in the data source. The approach for implementing this is illustrated in the "Setting predefined values for different column editors" section in this article. Note that the value for the DefaultInsertValue property is of type System.String.

Also ensure that the column in the database bound to the CheckBox control is of type Boolean.

I hope this information helps.

Viktor Tachev
