Image in layout.master

I am trying to add an image within a layout.master, but I'm having trouble with the path.

My images are located in the root of the theme, CSS works fine, but just having <img src="myimage.gif" /> doesn't work.

Thanks,
-Damien

Hi Damien,

You can do it using syntax like this:

src='<%= Page.ResolveUrl("~/Data/Sites/1/skins/mojosite-brightside/paypal-donate.gif")%>'

so you have to put the complete relative path and use single quotes for src='' because it has double quotes inside the function call.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Image in layout.master

Hey Guys,

I've also stumbled across this problem.  Is there a way to query the directory of the current skin?  Then do this;

src='<%= Page.CurrentSkinDirectory() + ("/paypal-donate.gif")%>'

I search for API docs on the website but I couldn't find them. 

Cheers

Mark

PS: I recently discovered mojoPortal and I love it.  Solves so many of my problems.  :-)

Hi Mark,

Yes there is an easy way its just a gap in documentation.

You can add an image from the skin folder to layout.master like this:

<portal:SkinFolderImage ID="imgs1" runat="server" ImageFileName="sun5.gif" CssClass="sunheader" />

so you only have to put the image file name and it will resolve the rest of the url correctly.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Image in layout.master

I have used this in the past and it works great:

 <img class="bg" src="dsc06798-modified.jpg" alt="My Little Place on The Web" runat="server" />

The key is the runat="server", .NET will re-base the url path to the image to the directory which contains the layout.master file. This can be used in any .NET app, not just mojoPortal.

HTH,
Joe D.
