ASP » Server » MapPath

Syntax:
Server.MapPath(Path)
Path
The Path argument is the path to be mapped.

The MapPath method maps a relative or virtual path to a physical path.

The MapPath method maps a relative or virtual path to a physical path. This method does not check for the validity or the existence of the physical path. If the path starts with a forward or backward slash, the method returns the path as if the path is a full virtual path. If the path does not start with a slash, then the method returns the path relative to the directory of the ASP file being processed.

There is one mandatory argument.

Examples

Code:
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
The path of this file is <% Response.Write Server.MapPath("test.asp")
%>
The path of the file1 is <% Response.Write Server.MapPath("\test.asp")
%>
The path of the file2 is <% Response.Write Server.MapPath("test\test.asp")
%>
The path of the file3 is <% Response.Write Server.MapPath("\")
%>
</BODY>
</HTML>
Output:
The path of this file is D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test.asp
The path of the file1 is D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test.asp
The path of the file2 is D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\test.asp
The path of the file3 is D:\Inetpub\wwwroot
