Can't access the server control from .cs code!

Trying to migrate from ASP... been scratching my head for almost 12 hours
now on this task that should be so easy, wtf can't I access the asp:label
control from my .cs code??? It returns no errors but simply no text is
I have 3 pages;

*** default.aspx ***
<%@ Register TagPrefix="User Controls" TagName="Initia lizer"
Src="initialize r.ascx" %>
<UserControls:I nitializer runat="server" />

*** initializer.asc x ***
<%@ Control Src="initialize r.cs" EnableViewState ="False" %>
<asp:label id="myLabel" text="here I want the text" runat=server/>

*** initializer.cs ***
using System.Web.UI.W ebControls;
public class Initializer
protected Label myLabel;
void Page_Load(objec t sender, System.EventArg s e)
Label myLabel = new Label();
myLabel.Text = "and I have success";

This is your user control's protected field, myLabel, of type Label.
void Page_Load(objec t sender, System.EventArg s e)
Label myLabel = new Label( );
This is a local variable in the Page_Load method, named myLabel, that is
covering up the myLabel private field.
myLabel.Text = "and I have success";

This line takes effect, but then this local variable leaves scope at the end
of the Page_Load method and in all this time, nothing has happened to
this.myLabel.Te xt.

Instead of declaring locally,

Label myLabel = new Label( );

just instantiate the Label you've already got,

myLabel = new Label( );

or, to be more explicit that you want the myLabel field on this user control,

this.myLabel = new Label( );

I am 100% sure that my datagird inside my datalist has an id of "Datagrid3". dgChild comes back with "Nothing" while debugging. Here is my code in the itemdatabound event for the datalist: <code>

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
