OnCheckChanged event not firing.

Not sure exactly what is wrong, but I can't seem to get the "OnCheckChanged" event to fire when clicking on a checkbox or a radiobutton.  I was having this trouble is a current website I was working on, so I decided to make a whole new website with nothing on it except for a checkbox and a radiobutton to test.  The new website didn't work either.  Attached is the complete code.  Maybe you guys could see something I've missed

I don't see a button or something, should I assume that you expect the checkedChanged event to fire when clicking the checkbox? If so, you should set the AutoPostBack value for the checkbox and you will be fine.

OMG, I am such a noob.  I forgot about the AutoPostBack property.
Thanks for the help.
