    Hello, I'm trying to bind a short datatype to a GridViewCheckBoxColumn but I'm getting a cast error.
    I know if I bind to a bool datatype works ok so How can I bind a GridViewCheckBoxColumn to a short datatype assumming that 0=false/unchecked and 1=true/checked?

    Hello Timo,

    You can add a class implementing the IValueConverter Interface that would be responsible for transforming the short datatype to boolean value. For example, your custom converter may look similar to:

    class ShortToBooleanConverter : IValueConverter
        public object Convert(object value, Type targetType,
            object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
            var myValue = (short)value;
            if (myValue == 1)
                return true;
                return false;
       public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType,
                object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
            return null;

    Then the definition of your GridViewCheckBoxColumn may be as follows;
    <telerik:GridViewCheckBoxColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding MyShortValue,    
                            Converter={StaticResource ShortToBooleanConverter}}"
