Hi

I have created a new Class Library Project and inside that i have created one folder and added a XML file inside that folder directory. Inside the Class Library Project i have one class file in that class i'm tring to load my XML file inside the directory previously specified. But i'm not able to load the XML file in that class.

Server.MapPath("ErrorMessages.xml")

It shows the name 'Server' does not exist in the current context.

I'm using .NET 2.0 with C#

you have to call along with the context for eg
context.Server.MapPath("errorMessages.xml:)

The only MapPath I know of is
        System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironment.MapPath("("ErrorMessages.xml");

But is this really what you want? When I want to *load* an XML-file, I use the ReadXml() function in the DataSet class. You have to instantiate the dataset first, like:

        DataSet ds = new DataSet();
        ds.ReadXml("ErrorMessages.xml");

Hey

Here i'm using the class library, how can set context here...
One option is "Place the xml in the same folder of bin" and load like this  private const string XML_FILE_NAME = "ErrorMessages.xml";
another is
Create a public property to set the path and get it ...

I want the second option

use this line to get the path of executing assembly.

using System.IO;
using System.Reflection;
 
string str = Path.GetDirectoryName(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location);

This will return <ApplicationPath>/bin/debug or <ApplicationPath>/bin/release depend upon the mode it is running.
So search two level up and search for your Xml Folder. I think this will help you.
