How to use the checkbox event

The checkbox event does not trigger.

Code behind
 public void SetBoldFont(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (chkBold.Checked)
        {
            ctlCurrTextBox.Font.Bold = true;
        }
    }

aspx file

        <asp:CheckBox ID="chkBold" runat="server" Height="16px" Text="Bold"
             AutoPostBack="True" onCheckChanged="SetBoldFont"   TextAlign="Left" />
            </asp:CheckBox>

What do I need to change?

Thanks

I do not need an update panel for a simple True/False control.

I added the following:

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
         ctlCurrTextBox = txtBusName;
         if (Page.IsPostBack)
        {
            chkBold.Checked = true;
         }
     }

 public void SetBoldFont(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (chkBold.Checked)   // This block is never reached.
        {
            ctlCurrTextBox.Font.Bold = true;
        }
    }

The answer is a simple sytax error.

onCheckChanged="SetBoldFont"

Should be: onCheckedChanged="SetBoldFont"
