Thanks for the reply. I did try that before and it didn't work, but it's
good to know what that method is used for. When I used it, the method
returned an absolute path for the website based on the location of the page
containing the control. My problem is that the theme information is located
at \\WebSite\App_Themes\MyTheme\ with the images for that theme located at
\\WebSite\App_Themes\MyTheme\Images and most of the pages of my site have a
path similar to \\WebSite\MyWebPage.aspx. All of the other skin information
for traditional asp controls contains properties like ImageUrl="images\mypic.gif"
and they work correctly. Using Reflector, I was able to determine that, at
some point, the page itself iterates through its controls and applies skin
information, which I'm assuming also includes adjusting the paths to any
skin information to absolute paths. For some reason, the paths on this
custom control and its parent are not being adjusted to include the skin
path (when I view the source of the page, the image src for the custom
control is still "images\mypic.gif" where all of the other paths have been
changed to "App_Themes\MyTheme\images\mypic.gif").


I'm thinking there has to be some type of attribute I am missing or some
type of method I need to implement to get this custom control to be included
when the page is adjusting the paths for the skin information

TIA
