    We bind boolean values and it translates the value to True/False (via the ToString()) method.  We often write code to translate this to Yes/No.  Is there an easy way in markup to translate the True/False to Yes/No, or does this always have to be in code?  If via the GridCheckBoxColumn, maybe?

    Hello Brian,

    You can use a template column and inject a declarative binding expression inside its item template like this one:

    <%# ((bool)DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Discontinued") == false ? "Yes" : "No") %>

    to achieve your goal.

    You can see that applied in action for our RadListView control on this live demo:
