Tilda is not working in URL paths

Hi,

I have put in the header of my page following links:
<head id="Head1">
    <title>Master</title>
    <link href="~/css/master.css" runat=server type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <link href="~/css/header.css" runat=server rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
I was expecting for tildas to get converted to actual path. This however did not happen. Here is what I get in source of my generated HTML:
<head id="Head1">
    <title>Master</title>
    <link href="~/css/master.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"></link>
    <link href="~/css/header.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link>
</head>

Please help.

Have you tried this:

<link href="../css/master.css" runat=server type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="../css/header.css" runat=server rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

~ only gets converted when the containing object has a runat="Server" attribute.

Hi transtoll2006,

Try this

<link href="./css/master.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"></link>
<link href="./css/header.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link>

sandip132 & riyazthad:
The whole point of having ~ is to remove relative paths so neither of your suggestions is acceptable.

mrichmon:
As you can see in my example I already have runat=server attribute in place.

Any other ideas why it does not work?

This should work and no need Runat server tag
check for path of ur css file/folder

<link href="../css/master.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="../css/header.css"  rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

you need to do

<head runat="server" id="head1">
    <link href="~/css/header.css" runat=server rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

to get that working...

your code is perfect. Nothing to do.

The problem I noticed in your generated HTML code. It is not actually converting. IT should be

<link href="css/master.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"></link>
<link href="css/header.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"></link>

Can you double check path is correct?

Thank you igphuckinglizard, you've almost solved my problem and I will grant points to you anyway, the issues was having runat=server in my <head> tag.

There is however another problem. I have usercontrol placed on this page, which has a link to css file (own) too. It looks like this:
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="menu.ascx.cs" Inherits="modules_menu" %>
    <link href="~/css/menu.css" runat=server type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
<div id="menu-wrap">
......

Generated html looks like this:
.......
            <div id="left">
                <link href="~/css/menu.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"></link>
<div id="menu-wrap">
.......

As I can not have another <head> tag in my module what do I do to fix it? (I tried to add runat=server to div which contains my user control without any luck)

Thank you.

you should avoid using linked stylesheets in user controls and look into the Page.Header.StyleSheet.CreateStyleRule method
