I need to set a path sitewide on web site load so that I can use an images path whatever page is loaded.

All pages reference a Masterpage by the way.

in VB.Net create a module which is accessible across the solution and create a public variable to store the value.

Module Module1
    Public moduleinteger As Integer
End Module


in C# create a public static class and create a public static variable to store the values which can be accessed anywhere in the project

namespace ModuleTest
{
        public static Module1
        {
                public static int moduleinteger;
        }
}

I need to set a variable as follows

dim _path as string = ""
_path="http://seg.mydomain.com/images"

Then be able to use it on a page with
<%#_path%> ---not sure about the syntax on that line

correct me otherwise,

 let me assume you are using an image control
then you can do it like this

dim _path as string = "http://seg.mydomain.com/images"
Image1.ImageUrl = _path & "<image>"

That's correct.  I need that _path to be available on any page.

However...the datasource is nopt called from code behind but with a connection string.

So the actual image on the aspx page looks like this

<img src="http://seg.mydomain.com/imagesCMS/large/<%#Eval("ImageSrc")%>" alt="" width="170px" />

Try changing the src like this

#Eval("imgfil", "http://seg.mydomain.com/imagesCMS/large/{0}.jpg")

let me know how it works

In your answer at the top you have
dim _path as string = "http://seg.mydomain.com/images"

how do I make that _path load at login and be available on every page in the site?

in VB.Net, create a public module, it can be accessed anywhere in the application as it creates a global scope for the variables declared with public
