Wondering if you could help me please. Currently have a page layout with a SharePointWebControl inserted on the page:

<SharePointWebControls:FieldValue FieldName="Boolean1" runat="server" />

The field itself is a SharePoint "Yes/No" field and currently displays "yes" or "no", however I want to get the value as "true", "false", "1" or "0"

Just wondering if anyone knows of a way of doing this please.

  • Have you tried SharePointWebControls:BooleanField instead of SharePointWebControls:FieldValue – Arsalan Adam Khatri Oct 10 '17 at 10:28

You should set the control as follow:

MyCustomField.ItemFieldValue = "1";
MyCustomField.Field.DefaultValue = "1";

Where 1 is for true, and 0 is for false


<SharePoint:BooleanField runat="server" FieldName="boolField" ControlMode="New" ID="MyCustomField"/>


if (!SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.IsSiteAdmin) // For example
 MyCustomField.Value = true; // Visually no changes
 MyCustomField.UpdateFieldValueInItem(); // Still nothing
