Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The following example sets a new Control object on a page, myControl1, to the control specified in a FindControl method call. If the call returns a control, the code uses the property to identify the control that contains myControl1. If the parent control exists, the string "The parent of the text box is" is concatenated with the ID property of the parent control and written to the Page. If no parent control is found, the string "Control not found" is written.
