In the ss book (when created a TableListField for displaying data) there is a line to cast Boolean data into 'Boolean->Nice' so that instead of Value (field name) and 0 or 1 (data) instead appears Value? and Yes or No.

Is there away to apply this to ModelAdmin please?

found the answer...

static $casting = array(
   "MyTextBoolean" => "Text"

public static $summary_fields = array (

public function MyTextBoolean()
	$str = 'No';
	if ($this->BooleanField== true)
		$str = 'Yes';

	return $str;
