    I didn't find this in the documentation for Backend Services under .NET, so I have to ask, what is the proper way to interpret yes/no columns when data comes back from Telerik? I would have thought Integer, but I'm not so sure. Here is what the documentation says:

    Telerik Backend Services Type .NET Property Type 
    Id                                                      Guid 
    Text                                                  string 
    Number                                            int, double, Enum
    Date and Time                                DateTime 
    File                                                   Guid 
    Geo Point                                        Telerik.Everlive.Sdk.Core.Model.System.GeoPoint()

    Hi Sulu,

    If the column is of type "Yes/No" it should be mapped to a boolean property. By using true/false for the values of this field you will fully benefit from the way the database treats this field for comparison purposes.

    Please, let us know if you have questions.
