Checkbox in a repeater not firing event

I have a checkbox in a repeater.  I need it to call my event handler in the code when the user clicks on it.
I tried onlick & onserverclick events with no luck.

<input type="checkbox" id="chkBox1" runat="server"  onclick="OnClickCheckBox"

event handler:
protected void OnClickCheckBox(object oSender, EventArgs oEventArgs)
{
   int x=0; << does not go here!
}

aren't you suppose to use ASP controls?.. and not HTML elements?..

i think if you want to handle the event, use javascript..
