I have a bit column that I am binding to. I want to show True or False instead of default Checkbox. 
Is there a way to turn that on?

However when I show True/False i lose the Sort/Filtering options.


Shows True False.. but not Sort/Filter
<grid:GridViewColumn Header="Is Public" UniqueName="IsPublic">
          <grid:GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
                   <DataTemplate>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding IsPublic}"></TextBlock>
                    </DataTemplate>
            </grid:GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
 </grid:GridViewColumn>
      '

Shows Checkbox.. does show Sort/Filter          
 <grid:GridViewDataColumn Header="Is Public2" DataMemberBinding="{Binding IsPublic}"    >
  </grid:GridViewDataColumn>

FYI.. adding IsFilterable does not help


<grid:GridViewColumn Header="Is Public" IsFilterable="True" IsGroupable="True" IsSortable="True" UniqueName="IsPublic">
                  <grid:GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
                      <DataTemplate>
                          <TextBlock Text="{Binding IsPublic}"></TextBlock>
                      </DataTemplate>
                  </grid:GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
              </grid:GridViewColumn>

 
                </grid:GridViewColumn>

Hello Casey,

 GridViewColumn is not a data-bound column, so it cannot be filtered. You can take the GridViewDataColumn you have shown in your initial post and just define the same CellTemplate you have for the GridViewColumn. Keep in mind that you need to preserve the DataMemberBinding attribute on the GridViewDataColumn, regardless of the fact that you define the same binding in the CellTemplate. The DataMemberBinding is also used for filtering, sorting, etc.

Kind regards,
