How to create an event for a GridView CheckBox TemplateField

I have a number of TemplateFields created as CheckBoxes in a Gridview and need to create an event so that when any one of them is clicked it fires an event.
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="SD" SortExpression="site_down">
                    <EditItemTemplate>
                        <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSD" runat="server" 
                            Checked='<%# Bind("site_down") %>' />
                    </EditItemTemplate>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSD" runat="server" Checked='<%# Bind("site_down") %>' 
                            Enabled="<%# true %>" />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                    
                </asp:TemplateField>

You can give a commandname to all of them in design time and then on the rowcommand event you can catch that particular command name and code for that only.

e.CommandName in the rowcommand name event will give you the commandname of the checkbox.

For help you can check this link:

Hope it helps.

Thanks for that. I have given them command names and do use them for other purposes. Simply my problem is (and I am running short of time)  that when I click on one of these boxes I need it to fire an event that I can trap. For example when I click on the CheckBox where the ID is "chkSD" (as above) I want to trigger an event. I suspect there is also the issue of 'PostBack' here as well?

I have no objection but I am just surprised that for a second time in a row I have asked a question, then responded to a request for further information and then heard absolutely nothing. I am questioning the value of being a premium member.
