Displaying "Bit" Database Fields in Web Forms

When you display the value of a field with a "Bit" data types in a Web Form, the values show as True or False, as opposed to the actual value of 0 or 1.

However, if you're using a DataReader to retrieve the data, casting the type explicity to Int displays the actual values, as shown below:


while (dr.Read ())
{
     Response.Write (Convert.ToInt16 ( dr["bitcolval"]));
}
