Property Value

Type: System::String^

The virtual directory of the page or user control that contains the server control.

The TemplateSourceDirectory property specifies the path to the page or user control that contains the current control. For example, if the Web page resides at http://www.contoso.com/application/subdirectory, the TemplateSourceDirectory property returns "application/subdirectory".

To return the application-relative virtual path ("~/subdirectory"), use the AppRelativeTemplateSourceDirectory property.

The following example uses the TemplateSourceDirectory property twice. The first time it is used in a Control::MapPathSecure method call to obtain the path to the directory in which the control resides. The second time it is in a Directory::GetFiles method call to obtain the list of all the files contained within that directory.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
