Handling checkbox click in GridDataBoundGrid

One column of my databound gdbg is a checkbox. This column is a type bit column in the underlying datatable. When the checkbox is clicked, I want to test the value and if true, update a date in another column on the same row. I'm having trouble getting the value of the checkbox. Following is the code for the CheckBoxClick event:

private void gridLabs_CheckBoxClick(object sender, GridCellClickEventArgs e)
//Set complete date if Complete is checked
Int32 col1Idx;
Int32 col2Idx;
gridLabs.CurrentCell.MoveTo(e.RowIndex, e.ColIndex, GridSetCurrentCellOptions.SetFocus);
GridCurrentCell cc = gridLabs.CurrentCell;
col1Idx = gridLabs.Binder.NameToColIndex("testComplete");
col2Idx = gridLabs.Binder.NameToColIndex("dateTestCompleted");
if (e.ColIndex == col1Idx)
//TestComplete column
if (cc.Renderer.ControlText == "False")
//Test is complete
gridLabs[e.RowIndex, col2Idx].CellValue = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();
//Test is not complete; clear date
gridLabs[e.RowIndex, col2Idx].CellValue = DBNull.Value;


I'm sure there's a simple solution. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry. Forgot to point out that in the click event, I always get the checkbox value prior to clicking it. So, if it is unchecked and I check it, the .cellvalue or the .renderer.controltext give me "false" instead of the expected true. Thanks.

I've opened a case in Direct-Trac. Thanks.
