I also noticed the boolean fields, while in edit mode show a text box, how can i have em show a checkbox instead?
I'll try to address your question, but I'm also going through some of the other problems here.
In that project, the users could select 2 categories, enter a search string and the result will show in a Grid View.
Here is my problem, if the "admin user" click on edit, change the value of the cell and execute the update, the value would not changed in the Hoo boy.
I might try that and see if you can assign an ID to a datasource and bind it in code behind.
