absolute path to image in jquery code

Last Modified: 2015-09-21
I'm using the jQuery UI DatePicker in my asp.net web forms application.

In my application directory folder which is called Application1 I have a folder called images where I put all my image files.

So the direct path through the web browser would be something like this:


In my jquery code I'm setting the path like this:

buttonImage: "images/CalendarIcon.jpg"

this works fine in my development server but for some reason when I deploy it to production the image doesn't show up.

This also worked fine.
buttonImage: "http://www.mywebsite.com/images/CalendarIcon.jpg"

anyone know why this path is not working on production iis7 server             buttonImage: "images/CalendarIcon.jpg"

anyone know how to write absolute path to this image?
