I have a project using ASP.net and Visual Studio. I want to display an image using image control. However the image(s) are outside of the visual studio project. I have setup a virtual directory and used that as my image1.imageurl property. It worked the first time I tried it but I deleted the original.aspx I created and started a fresh one and now it doesn't work.

virtual directory  Alias = collateral
I enabled browsing on the virtual directory

ASP.net page with image control.
image1.Imageurl = collateral/penguins.jpg
penguins.jpg is there
I have also tried /collateral/penguins.jpg as well but no luck.

Any help or alternatives would be appreciated.

Does this work - this assumes the current directory contains the other directory and image
image1.Imageurl = ./collateral/penguins.jpg


(If it doesn't then you may want to display a message box or similar with the current path - maybe it isn't what you assume it is).
