    Converting from using the microsoft DataGridView.  When using a checkbox column in DataGridView, you can set the value that the data holds for the item to be checked, or the true value.  In our system, True is 1, and 0 is false. 

    Is there a way to have the GridViewCheckColumn identify what the data value should be for true?  It would be a lot of work to change all of our data to convert to use boolean rather than 1/0.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for writing.

    In this case, you should use a TypeConverter. An example for this is available here: Converting Data Types.

    Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.
