Default Problem getting value out of a custom webcontrol

I have the following web control. When I tab out of the TextBox of this control, I have an alert to display the value of the control. However, when the alert in the ClientCallback() is executed, it displays undefined. This means I some how do not get the control. And suggestions? Looks like there is some problem with the way I am gettting the value out of the control.

Here is the javascript function which gets generated:

function ClientCallback()
 alert(document.getElementById('WebCustomControl1_1 ').value);
 args = document.getElementById('WebCustomControl1_1').val ue;
 WebForm_DoCallback('WebCustomControl1_1',args,Call backHandler,null,ErrorHandler,true)


Here is the code for this control:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Text;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace WebControlLibrary1

    [ToolboxData("<{0}:WebCustomControl1 runat=server></{0}:WebCustomControl1>")]
    public class WebCustomControl1 : WebControl, ICallbackEventHandler
        public string Text
                String s = (String)ViewState["Text"];
                return ((s == null) ? String.Empty : s);

                ViewState["Text"] = value;


        protected override void RenderContents(HtmlTextWriter output)

            output.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Type, "text");
            output.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Id, this.ClientID);
            output.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Name, String.Concat(this.ClientID, "zz"));
            output.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Value, this.Text);
            output.AddAttribute("OnBlur", "ClientCallback()");



        protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
            Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptResource(typ eof(WebControlLibrary1.WebCustomControl1), "WebControlLibrary1.Utility.js");

                "function ClientCallback() { alert(document.getElementById('" + this.ClientID + "').value); " +
                "args = document.getElementById('" + this.ClientID + "').value;" +
                Page.ClientScript.GetCallbackEventReference(this, "args", "CallbackHandler", null, "ErrorHandler", true) + "}",

        public void RaiseCallbackEvent(string eventArguments)
            int result;
            if (!Int32.TryParse(eventArguments, out result))
                throw new Exception("The method or operation not implemented");


        public string GetCallbackResult()
            return "Valid Data";

Javascript file:

function ValidateText(ctl)
    if (ctl.value=='') {
        alert('Please enter a value.');

function CallbackHandler(args,ctx)
    alert("The data is valid");

function ErrorHandler(args,ctx)
    alert("Please enter a number");
