// Use the Contains method to check whether 
// a child control exists, and if it does, 
// use the Remove method to delete it.         
if (myButton.Controls.Contains(myChildControl))
   msgRemove.Text = "You removed myLiteralControl.";
else msgRemove.Text="The control to remove does not exist." ;
