    protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter output) 
    {
      // Checks if a DataBoundLiteralControl object is present. 
      if ( (HasControls()) && (Controls[0] is DataBoundLiteralControl) ) 
      {
        // Obtains the DataBoundLiteralControl instance.
        DataBoundLiteralControl boundLiteralControl = (DataBoundLiteralControl)Controls[0];
        // Retrieves the text in the boundLiteralControl object.
        String text = boundLiteralControl.Text;
