private TextBox txtRequestLevel;
private string strRequestLevel;

public RelatedRequestsToolPart()
this.Title = “Related Requests ToolPart”;
this.Init += new EventHandler(this.RelatedRequestsToolPart_Init);

public override void ApplyChanges()
((RelatedRequestsWebpart)this.ParentToolPane.SelectedWebPart).RequestLevel = Convert.ToString(Page.Request.Form[strRequestLevel]);

protected override void RenderToolPart(HtmlTextWriter output)
txtRequestLevel = new TextBox();
txtRequestLevel.ID = strRequestLevel;
txtRequestLevel.Text = ((RelatedRequestsWebpart)(this.ParentToolPane.SelectedWebPart)).RequestLevel;
output.Write(“Request Level: “);
