The following example calls the MapPath method to associate an actualServerPath variable with the physical path associated with the user control named myControl.

          myControl.Response.Write("<br /><b>The server code is running on machine</b> : " + myControl.Server.MachineName);
          string actualServerPath = myControl.MapPath(myControl.Request.Path);

myControl.Response.Write("<br /><b>The server code is running on machine</b> : " + myControl.Server.MachineName)
Dim actualServerPath As String = myControl.MapPath(myControl.Request.Path)


While similar to the Page.MapPath method, this method maps the path from the .ascx file's location, not the .aspx file's location. You can use this method to obtain a path to a directory of images or other resources associated with your UserControl object.
