Help with code behind in VS 2005


Just started to learn how to create a web site using Visual Studio 2005 pro and have got a query.

I have a placed a Radio button and a Dropdown list box from the 'standard' toolbox on to a page. I have set the 'enabled' property of the list box to false. The idea is that when I click on the radio button it sets the 'enabled' property of the list box to true.
here is the VB code behind:

Partial Class AddConsultation
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Protected Sub RbStudent_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles RbStudent.CheckedChanged
        Cbtutor.Enabled = True
    End Sub
End Class

Now I imagine it is something to do with the 'changed' event. There is no 'clicked' event.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

With web site development, events are usually detected when the page posts back.  In order to get this to happen with the CheckBox, you need to set AutoPostBack = True.
