Hey !

These lines of code are written in global.asax file. I want to confirm what would these lines of code do:

HttpContext context = HttpContext.Current;
string path1 = context.Request.Path.ToLower();
string path2 = Server.MapPath(originalpath);

would path1 have the URL requested each time ? And will path2 have physical path of the resource on server ?

Thanks.

Hi,
That is correct.

For example say my url is
http://www.mydomain.com/subfolder/Default.aspx

HttpContext context = HttpContext.Current;
//Gets or sets the HttpContext object for the current HTTP request.

string path1 = context.Request.Path.ToLower();
//Take the path /subfolder/Default.aspx and changes the case to Lower /subfolder/default.aspx

string path2 = Server.MapPath(path1);
//Take the path /subfolder/Default.aspx and gets the server file location. I just used path1 since originalpath is a variable.
//The results are  c:\inetpub\WebSite1\default.aspx

And yes, those are the vaules

Thanks man.

One more quick question:

I have written

context.RewritePath(landingpage, context.Request.PathInfo, string.Format("page={0}", pagename));

for (int j = 0; j < parentpages.Count; j++)
                    {
                        //some statements
                        }

                        else
                           
                           if (originalpath.Contains("/news/") || originalpath.Contains("/careers/") || originalpath.Contains("/product-catalog/"))
                            {
                               //some statements
                            }

                    }


Since it is a rewrite path statement, will this for loop be executed ? Like, the flow will go to the page where rewrite path has directed it, or will this for loop be executed first and only then it will go to the intended page.
