Webform checkbox1_checkedChanged not firing

using System;

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
    string checkboxstatus = "Not Checked";
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Label1.Text = checkboxstatus;

    protected void CheckBox1_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Label1.Text = checkboxstatus;
        if (CheckBox1.Checked == true)
            checkboxstatus = "Checked";
            Label1.Text = checkboxstatus;

Open in new window

I have a checkpoint at Label1.Text = checkboxstatus; and it never gets there.. probably a simple error but new to webforms
