Calling User Controls from pages within different directories

I have an aspx file in the root of my application which calls a user control also sat in the root of my application.

My user control references images in an image directory off of the root. Example...

<img src="Images/MyPicture.jpg"    -    Everything works fine

If I call the same user control from an aspx page within a sub directory off of the root the user control obviously doesn't locate the images because it is looking for a directory called images in the sub directory I am currently in - It is not going back to the root

Anyone a solution without having to create another user control with a different path for the image

Thanks

You can try using a universal link to the source of the image:

<img src="<%=Request.ApplicationPath%>/images/MyPicture.gif">

This should work fine from whichever directory you are calling it from, b/c it will force it to look at the application root.

Let me know if it helps, should be a simple search/replace to change it in your application.
