Getting the physical path of a web application through a custom web control

Hello,

I would like to know the path of the web application at DESIGN TIME for use in a custom web control.

I cannot use Page.Request.ApplicatonPath as that is runtime
System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory returns the visual studio folder
Page.MapPath(name) is runtime.

Any help would be appreciated. Cheers!

               Dim webApplication As IWebApplication = DirectCast(Me.Site.GetService(GetType(IWebApplication)), IWebApplication)
                Dim projectPath As String = webApplication.RootProjectItem.PhysicalPath

That seems to do it.

Unfortunately only returns at run time not design time :(
