It looks like boolean fields are displayed in a datagrid as either 'Yes' or 'No'. Is there an option to display them as a check-mark or blank (or checked or un-checked checkbox)? This would be much more readable. If this is not currently possible, where do I file an enhancement request? EDIT: Hi Mohammed What I ended up doing was to use the batch replace functionality (Edit menu... Batch replace...) to replace 'Yes' with 'X' and 'No' with ' '. This then displays boolean attributes as an X or blank in datagrids. One word of warning - if you do this, there is then no way of reversing this operation for the 'No' value as you cannot find the ' ' entry in the list of labels to replace again. EDIT: This workaround will not do what you want then.. sorry. You need to log an enhancement request. Just one correction to what I said above - you should make the changes in the System Texts section under Project. You can then reverse the changes if you need to.
All requests, bug and project questions can be filed in the MxDN Partner Portal under Incidents. These are then reviewed and filed as a feature request if R&D decides this is not a bug.

How about using an enumeration to do this? You can select "display as image" in the datagrid properties. Simply add two images (one with a checked box and one with an unchecked box) and you're good to go.
If you don't want the dropdown menu to select the value, just implement a virtual attribute which maps the boolean to an enumvalue.
