I would go so far as to say, that you can only bind a boolean to an asp:CheckBoxField.

However you can use a asp:TemplateField and convert the value in the markup to pass it to an asp:CheckBox you could also do that in the DataBound event.

Make sure to catch the event before adding and editing a row, so you can correctly read the value from your checkbox and set the right datafield.

  <asp:checkbox id="chkOnlineCheck" runat="server" checked="<%# Eval("ONLINE_CHECK").ToString() == "0" ? false : true) %>" />' />
