How is the Path property set in Request.Path?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a website which is running on a locally on IIS, and have noticed that I can display an image in /Image/MyImage.jpg from an aspx file in the web root directory with either of the following html:<img src="Image/MyImage.jpg...> or <img src="../Image/MyImage.jpg...>Even though these point to different locations, and <img src="../Image/MyImage.jpg...> is incorrect, they both work and the image is displayed correctly.I've looked into this, and in Application_BeginRequest(), HttpApplication.Context.Current.Request.Path is "/Image/MyImage.jpg" in both cases, which is correct.If I run the website on the local ASP.NET development environment (localhost), it never calls Application_BeginRequest() for the image, and only <img src="Image/MyImage.jpg...> works, which is what I would expect.How is the Request.Path variable set? I find it confusing that two different resource locations would cause the path in Request.Path to point to the same location.

Feature request for System.IO.Path - GetPublicPath, GetLocalPath


uncPath = System.IO.Path.GetPublicPath( originalPath as string )
localPath = System.IO.Path.GetLocalPath( originalPath as string )

This is constantly a bugger in distributed systems. When saving the full path to a file, say, in a database, one likes to store a public name. Using the most publicly accessible UNC path.  But, to succeed to do so, even if it means using administrative shares (i.e. D$ for D: drive).  In this way, when building distributed systems, components running on remote computers can find the file.  Thus the need for GetPublicPath.

But when you actually go to processing, and you use UNC paths, I have found file access to take longer than when using a purely local path (if possible,... if indeed the file is local). GetLocalPath resolves to simple, non UNC type path names using simple drive letters when possible. But if the file is not local, then it may not change the input path at all. GetLocalPath gives me the most optimal path to the file, given where I am at. Avoiding network elements in the path, when possible.

I have written these for myself, and use them constantly, and am confounded that they don't exist in the framework.

My routines even have the ability to accept a second parameter, which is a computer name, so I can say, calculate a path that would be local, not at the computer I am running from,

Creating a user friendly alias for the website path


 Hello mates,

I am hosting my ASP.NET application on a Windows 2003 Server.

To browse to my application one has to type the path :http://serverName/applicationName

I want users to only type  applicationName on the web adress area.I believe there is something to do with alias and CNAME on DNS records that can adress this.

Any help on how to go about doing this will be highly appreciated.

How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario


How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario:

Functionality: We have scenario that 1<sup>st</sup> hit one LDAP server with some 'fixed user name' &' fixed password ' and filter data with specific User name(which given by user) getting 'User dn'.

After that we hit Next LDAP server based on the 'User dn' getting from 1<sup>st</sup> server.

(So, in my case 1<sup>st</sup> LDAP server works like as Load balancing server but functionalitywise it is different)


Split URL/Path in Classic AND .net 2.0


I need to be able to get the different parts of the URI (and convert from/to relative page paths) in BOTH classic ASP and .Net 2.0 (VB).

For example, if I have "http://sitename.company.com/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1" OR "/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1"

IS there a function where I can pass in either string (assuming I'm on sitename.company.com) and get back an array with:

(0): sitename.company.com
(1): index.aspx
(2): sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1

(Or, alternately, three different functions that would return the three parts?)

asp.net path issue


Hi all,
I am working on an application where many hyperlinks ( <a hrefs> like <a href=/web/index.html ) are used. The website is working fine on live server. The previous link goes to wwww.mysite.com/web/index.html which fine. But when i setup the website on my local machine. The above link goes to
http://localhost/web/index.html which is not correct path and I get resource not found error. If i correct the path in browser like this :

Path 'OPTIONS' is forbidden

Don't know exactly where this goes, so I shall post here.

I'm getting an error when I link to a Word Document.  My Hyperlink control simply opens up the doc in a new window.  The error message is "Path to 'OPTIONS' is forbidden."

The Word document actually comes up and is displayed, but my error handling sends me about 5 emails each time a document is viewed.  I'm using MS Application Blocks, and this is the error I'm getting:
