How does one specify the value that causes a grid checkbox to be checked?  I've tried data values of Y, T, and 1 to no avail.

Assuming the cell is selected the this would toggle the value

  with Grid1 do
  begin
    if Cells[ColumnIndex,RowIndex] = 'False' then
      Cells[ColumnIndex,RowIndex] := 'True'
    else
      Cells[ColumnIndex,RowIndex] := 'False';
  end;

The grid is readonly and not editable.  I just want to display checks based on the data for that column.  Does it need to be a boolean field?  Right now it's a char(1) with 2 possible values, C or B and I want it to be checked if it's a C.  If it were a Delphi TdbCheckBox you would set property ValueChecked to "C".

Read-only and not editable is fine - you can still check it from code.

AFAIK the grid checkbox is boolean at this time and there is no
valuechecked support

You can still programmatically modify cells when the grid is read-only.
Only the user can't modify the cells.

And yes, it must be a Boolean "True" or "False" value, at least for now.

Finally, in addition to Raul's suggestion, you can also set column values
(as strings) for the current row using the TGridColumn Value property:

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

I fixed it at the source by returning true or false for that column via SQL.
