Custom Server Controls :: Make Root Relative Path?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm creating a custom server control which needs to take in a root-relative path for one of it's properties. I use the UrlProperty, but when I select a file in the markup, the selected path doesn't inlcude the the "~/". I'd like to mimic the behavior of a hyperlink. So let's say I have this:

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl

When I type in an equals sign after the NavigateUrl property, intellisense pops open a URL picker and I can pick from any page to produce this code:

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl="~/default.aspx"

this code has the "~/" in front. When I use my control, I have this:

<cc1:TestControl ID="TestControl1" Url="default.aspx"

the C# code has this property:

public string Url { get; set; }

Does anyone know how I can make the "~/" be placed in front to make a root-relative path?

C# - How To Select A Folder Relative To Root In Website

Jul 29, 2010

I am trying to select all the files from a folder in my website and store them in a collection. The problem is that when I run the website it is not selecting the folder in my website:

This is the basic structure: [Root Folder] --> [FilesFolder]

Here is the code I am using:

DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo("FilesFolder");

But it is showing this at runtime as the location of the folder:

C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesMicrosoft SharedDevServer10.0FileUploads

Is there a way to select the folder relative to the root of the website?

I am using C# with ASP.NET 3.5

Converting Relative Path To Tilde Path?

Apr 4, 2010

I have this master page, that uses a few .js files and a flash animation.

the <script> and <object> tags that are used to embed these in the page take in relative paths as src. However, since the pages .aspx, i'll need to convert these into tilde paths, ie. somehow change the relative paths to tilde path (is this the absolute path?), so that i can use the master page in any of my pages in subfolders as well. if this question has been posted b4, kindly give me a link... i've not been able to find a solution.

MVC :: Routing Relative Path Instead Of Absolute Path?

Jun 9, 2010

When I write following code in my view

<% Url.Action("Logon") %>
the mvc framework generates
/Account/Logon ({controller}/{action})
as path.
'/Account/Logon' path is an absolute path. Is there a way to change is to a relative path, like Account/Logon or ../Account/Logon.

Also, when I use the Html.Beginform(), the mvc framework generates <form action="/account/logon"..., I want to change this to <form action="account/logon"...So, problem is that I want relative paths instead of absolute path.

Getting Relative Path In JavaScript?

Jun 21, 2010

I've got this app where I'm using an IHttpHandler to serve JSON data to my JavaScript method.


This works fine on my "localhost" webserver, but I've also got a staging server for my clients to use.

The problem that I'm having is that when the app is hosted on the staging server, the theSource is mapped incorrectly (contains /ClientSite/). I could do something like a String.Replace but I'm looking for a more elegant way of achieving this.

Get A FileStream From A Relative Path?

Apr 24, 2010

I am trying to get a FileStream from a relative path. The file is in my project, but when I try to do that it automatically appends C:\ in front of that.

1. Does the FileStream only works if the file is on a local Hard Dive?

2. Also if it works from the local hard drive, then does my application needs some permission to read the file from C Drive?

Web Forms :: How To Return A Relative Path

Apr 19, 2010

what it does at the moment is return an absolute path for example h:myfile . however, this is causing me problems because when browsing to the page, it is not returning the file i need because it is looking for a h: drive which the client machine does not have. so i was thinking i need to return a relative path so the not looking straight to the h: drive and rather it is just looking for the filename. i have also created this as a virtual directory on iis which is where is looks for the file location.

Assuming I have a .css file with the following linebody { background-image: url('../images/bg.png') }My build process does some CSS magic and eventuall move this file from

C# - Use A Relative Path In XDocument.Load?

May 6, 2010

I have an XML file named PageData.xml in my App_Data folder. I want to populate an XDocument with this file using XDocument.Load.

If I supply the full physical path it works, i.e.:

XDocument vXDoc = XDocument.Load("/Work/Project/Web/100413 Dev/App_Data/PageData.xml");

...where "Work" is a folder on my C: drive.

If I try a relative path like this, though, I get a DirectoryNotFoundException:

XDocument vXDoc = XDocument.Load("AppData/PageData.xml");

"Could not find a part of the path 'C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesMicrosoft SharedDevServer10.0AppDataPageData.xml'."

This is obviously wrong, but there must be an easy way to set the correct relative path?

MVC :: Relative Virtual Path Is Not Allowed Here?

Oct 29, 2010

OK, I've seen a lot of ambiguous errors, but this was is in the top 20 or so. I have a RenderPartial that looks like this:


When the view loads, I get this error:

The relative virtual path '~Areas/User/Views/Shared/ProjectStats.ascx' is not allowed here. That really helps. Why isn't it allowed there? What's wrong with it? Just above it I have other PartialRender calls that work without a problem. They're created exactly the same way. Here's another:


This works fine. I thought maybe it was due to accessing a view from another Area, but I added a partial view to that Area's folder and it still didn't work.
