Hello

In my jQuery script I want to load content using the $.post method.
In this method I point to a specific controller etc...
Instead of using the fixed path localhost/StockManamgent ...... I would like jQuery to be able to resolve the used url for the virtual directory in IIS.

$.post("http://localhost/StockManagement/Stock/LoadBrands/" + materialId, null, function (data)


Is this possible?

Thx

location.href;

No I'm sorry I can't get enough information from the location object.

Here are the possible options: http://www.javascriptkit.com/jsref/location.shtml

I actually need the virtual directory of IIS, not the controller, action etc...

If the virtual directory is there in current URL, you can get it from location.href,
else you need to send it from the server side script.

Not with Javascript

You may use something like : var vdir = "<%= Server.MapPath("\\LoadBrands").Replace("\\","\\\\") %>"

http://www.w3schools.com/ASP/met_mappath.asp

Test page :

(create a new website named WebSite123)
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        var vdir = "<%= Server.MapPath("\\WebSite123").Replace("\\","\\\\") %>";
        alert(vdir);
    </script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window
