Setting DataView checkbox for custom entity

It's a pain formatting code for blogs. Save the hassles and go here.

Now, ever wanted to set a checkbox in asp.net 2.0 after you have databound to it with a custom object? This code may be useful and save you some time :

protected void ucDetailsView1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
DetailsView dv = sender as DetailsView;

if (dv == null)

IAccount account = dv.DataItem as IAccount;
if (account != null)
CheckBox cb = dv.FindControl("ucMyCheckbox") as CheckBox;
if (cb != null)
cb.Checked = account.IsEnabled;
