When screen is displayed using ASP.NET, IE6 provides error message:
     Line 14
     Char 9
     Error: 'CheckBox1' is undefined
     Code: 0
     URL: http://localhost/atlins2/controls/toy.aspx

What needs to change so that the event callback for checkbox can work?

Why this way: CheckBox1.onClick

May be it should be like this:

document.form1.CheckBox1.onClick

Hi gops1,
  Tried that, but it didn't work.  Keep trying.  Better yet, build a toy, get it working, and then you'll *know* you have a solution.

Here is what does work.
1. add onload function with parenthesis to <body onload= ... >
2. for convenience, define a variable for CheckBox1 = document.form1.CheckBox1
3. when using onclick event, use all lowercase.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script language="javascript">
        var CheckBox1;
        function load() {
            alert("load");
            CheckBox1 = document.form1.CheckBox1
            CheckBox1.onclick = CheckBox1_Changed;
        }
        function CheckBox1_Changed() {
            alert("CheckBox1 Changed")
        }
    </script>
</head>
<body onload=load()>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" Text="CheckBox1" />
    </form>
</body>
</html>
