capuring an event from Generic List of CheckBox controls

I have a List<Checkbox> controls that I need to detect whether or not other elements in this List<Checkbox> are checked or not. I'm figuring that I need to use an Event but struggling to put together. Does anyone have any experience with this specifically or could share some example code?

Thanks
Chuck

Could you please explain your scenario in more details?
One way  - you may iterate through items and check if check boxes are checked. No events...

I have a list of CheckBox controls displayed in a Panel that I need to allow only one in the list to be checked at a time.

Wouldn't it be easier to use radiobuttons? When you have several radiobuttons on a panel/container one only can be checked at a time. You do not need to do anything. Radiobuttons are available both for win forms and web controls:

One more thought. I believe in Ui we need to obey some conventions. If a user sees check boxes he/she expects that any number of check boxes can be checked. Check boxes should NOT behave like radiobutton. Same with radiobuttons. User expects that ONE ONLY radiobutton can be checked at a time, and it would be very wrong to make radiobuttons behave like check boxes.

This is true for for any language, is it VB, C#, C, Java, PHP, name it.
