simple one. what does the tilda backslash mean in urls?
Posted on 2008-11-17
I ve been working with menu controls and I ve noticed when you make hyperlinks to pages on the site it uses the tilda backslash in links. e.g. ~/FolderName/FileName.aspx
Is it something to do with the project root?
I have the following structure.
|_ + Online
|_ + Example
Normally, to make a link to default1.aspx from default2.aspx I would have used /ShowUsers/Online/default1.aspx
but thats assuming that the project is deployed to a virtual directory with the same name as the project.
It would be much better to use ~/Online/default1.aspx.
Is this right?
