public class CustomControlCollection : ControlCollection
	private HttpContext context;

	public CustomControlCollection(Control owner)
		: base(owner)

		HttpContext.Current.Trace.Write("The control collection is created.");
		// Display the Name of the control
		// that uses this collection when tracing is enabled.
		HttpContext.Current.Trace.Write("The owner is: " + this.Owner.ToString());
