Inline C# Script Not working

I am trying to do a client-side script to make a row appear/disappear when the users clicks on a radio button.  I was going to do this in JavaScript, but got to reading about putting inline C# into the code, so thought I would try that for consistency (also some people turn off JavaScript in their browser).

Anyhow, I can't get it to work - have tried modifying it every-which-way and it is either not firing at all (current state) or it is giving me an error: "Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'ShowRows' is undefined.

The script code is as follows:

<head id="Head1" runat="server">
  <script type="text/C#" runat="server" language="C#">
        protected void ShowRows()
            if (rbCategory.Checked)
                trLocation.Visible = true;
                trSortOrder.Visible = false;
                txtSortOrder.Text = "0";
                ddlSubcategory.SelectedIndex = -1;
                trSortOrder.Visible = true;
                trLocation.Visible = false;
                cbSchaumburg.Checked = false;
                ddlPrograms.SelectedIndex = -1;

...and this is the portion of the code containing the controls that call it:

      <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="2"><p><strong>The 
          Degree/Certificate/Credential/Concentration named above:</strong></p>
          <asp:RadioButton ID="rbCategory" runat="server" GroupName="degreeType" 
              Text="belongs to this Program of Study: " Checked="True" TabIndex="3" onClick="<%ShowRows();%>" />
&nbsp;<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlPrograms" runat="server" TabIndex="4">

              ControlToValidate="ddlPrograms" Display="Dynamic" Enabled="False" 
              ErrorMessage="RequiredFieldValidator" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="Red" 
              SetFocusOnError="True">* Required</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
          <br />
         <asp:RadioButton ID="rbSubcategory" runat="server" GroupName="degreeType" Text="is a Subcategory of: " onClick="<%ShowRows();%>"
         TabIndex="5" />

              Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="Red"

            <strong>Sort Order:</strong>&nbsp;
            <asp:TextBox ID="txtSortOrder" runat="server" Columns="3" MaxLength="2"

      <tr id="trLocation" runat="server">
        <td align="left" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
            <asp:CheckBox ID="cbSchaumburg" runat="server" 
                Text="This program is offered at the Schaumburg campus" TabIndex="8" />

I definitely don't want to do a postback, because it cases problems with the database calls and the handling of the form data.  So is it not possible to embed and execute C# code inline like this? I tried to remove the runat="server" so it would execute on the client side, but got the same error.
