What is the best way to do this when looping a list? I have tried to evaluate it with something like this but it wont let me evaluate bool as an "if" condition

   if (item["ShowTitle"] == true)
//do something

You can use:

 if (bool.Parse(item["ShowTitle"].ToString()) == true)


if (item["ShowTitle"].ToString() == true.ToString())
