Default checkbox in datagrid

I am getting an 'Specific cast is not valid' error when I bind a datagrid to a dataset.

I am returning a 0 or 1 in the 'depends' field in my SQL.

In my datagrid I have:

                                        <asp:CheckBox ID="chkIncluded" Runat=server Checked='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"depends") %>' >

Try casting it to the proper form:

<%# CType(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"depends" ), Boolean) %>


<%# (bool)DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"depends" ) %>
