I have a grid view(drg).The first column diplays the value of checkbox(true or false).

I am counting the number of "True" values and display it in textbox txtc when I click on it.

Private Sub txtc_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As System.EventArgs)
' ** Place Event Handling Code Here **

Dim count As Integer = 0
For Each row As Infragistics.Win.UltraWinGrid.UltraGridRow In dgr.Rows
If row.Cells(0).Value = True Then
count += 1
count += 0
End If
txtc.Text = count.ToString

End Sub

This is the error.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

Seems that you are missing your quotations for the .Value.

Dim iCount As Integer = 0
        With DataGridView1
            For i As Integer = 0 To .RowCount - 1 '// loop thru all Rows.
                If .Rows(i).Cells(0).Value = "True" Then iCount += 1 '// check for value and Then only add +1.
        End With
        txtc.Text = iCount.ToString
