Putting image files in a subdirectory of the executible.

UJ
I am making an executable that has lots of graphics. I'd like to keep the
graphics together in a subdirectory. I can figure out how to make a link to
the file in Visual Studio but how do I tell it when it goes to create the
install that I want them in a subdirectory? And how do I reference them in
Studio?

TIA - Jeff.

Jeff,
In your deployment project, you would create a new folder below the
application target folder, and add all the images to it.

I have an asp.net project which includes some javascript files which live in a subdirectory to the project root directory. The include statements obviously expect the files to be in that subdirectory. I wish to debug the javascript, but when I try to add the files to the project, they are copied into the project root directory. I tried to 'create' a folder in Solution Explorer and hand copied the files in there, and then tried to add...

I have a subdirectory with it's own images folder. All the image paths in the pages in the sub directory are "image/image.jpg" When I Response.Redirect to a page in the subdirectory the images are fine but when I use Server.Transfer all the links are broken. I'd prefer to use the relative paths. Is there a way around this in the Server.Transfer? Many thanks Kevin Vogler
