Here's sample code snippet:
var physicalpath= "c:\Projects\NewApplication\NewApplication\Details\Page1.aspx";
Response.Write(physicalpath.Replace(Request.ServerVariables["APPL_PHYSICAL_PATH"],"/"));

Open in new window

You might also have to replace \ by /

Hi,

Convert absolute path back into a relative web path :

This migh work;
String RelativePath = AbsolutePath.Replace(Request.ServerVariables["APPL_PHYSICAL_PATH"], String.Empty);

If the page URL is c:\Projects\NewApplication\NewApplication\Details\Page1.aspx,
I am trying to get  \Details\Page1.aspx from Page URL.

Hi,

Here is the solution -

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            const string filePath = @"c:\Projects\NewApplication\NewApplication\Details\Page1.aspx";

            var lastDirectory = Path.GetFileName(Path.GetDirectoryName(filePath));
            var fileName = Path.GetFileName(filePath);

            Console.WriteLine("The path is: " + filePath);

            Console.WriteLine("\nThe file name with last directory is: " + lastDirectory + @"\" + fileName);

            Console.ReadKey();
        }

Open in new window
