How do I get the value of a label on a repeater?

I have a repeater with a label and a button (with OnClick="SaveCN")
In the saveCN function, how do I get the value of what is in the label?

In your button click function use this code:
Dim lbl As Label = sender.Parent.FindControl("Label1")

Open in new window

Here's an example page:
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title> EE Q_28613082 </title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        clicked: <asp:Label ID="LabelClicked" runat="server" Text="-"></asp:Label>
        <br />
        <br />
        <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server">
                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# eval("name") %>'></asp:Label>
                <asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" Value='<%# eval("id") %>' />
                <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" OnClick="SaveCN" UseSubmitBehavior="false" />
                <br />
                <br />
<script runat="server">

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not IsPostBack Then
            Dim dt As New DataTable
            dt.Columns.AddRange({New DataColumn("id", GetType(Integer)), New DataColumn("name", GetType(String))})
            For i As Integer = 1 To 10
                dt.Rows.Add({i, "Name " & i})
            Repeater1.DataSource = dt
        End If
    End Sub

    Protected Sub SaveCN(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Dim lbl As Label = sender.Parent.FindControl("Label1")
        LabelClicked.Text = lbl.Text
    End Sub
