Convert a boolean to Yes/No in a ASP.NET GridView


I have a ASP.NET GridView with a column mapped to a boolean. I want do display "Yes"/"No" instead of "True"/"False". Well actually I want "Ja"/"Nej" (in Danish).

Is this possible?

<asp:gridview id="GridView1" runat="server" autogeneratecolumns="false">
        <asp:boundfield headertext="Active" datafield="Active" dataformatstring="{0:Yes/No}" />

Best Solution

I use this code for VB:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Active" SortExpression="Active">
    <ItemTemplate><%#IIf(Boolean.Parse(Eval("Active").ToString()), "Yes", "No")%></ItemTemplate>

And this should work for C# (untested):

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Active" SortExpression="Active">
    <ItemTemplate><%# (Boolean.Parse(Eval("Active").ToString())) ? "Yes" : "No" %></ItemTemplate>
