UserControl::MapPath Method

Assigns a virtual file path, either absolute or relative, to a physical file path.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public:
String^ MapPath(
	String^ virtualPath
)

Parameters

virtualPath
Type: System::String

The virtual file path to map.

Return Value

Type: System::String
The physical path to the file.

While similar to the Page::MapPath method, this method maps the path from the .ascx file's location, not the .aspx file's location. You can use this method to obtain a path to a directory of images or other resources associated with your UserControl object.

The following example calls the MapPath method to associate an actualServerPath variable with the physical path associated with the user control named myControl.
