Access files in VS - C #


Colleagues, I have the following problem: I need to access files of different types (images, pdfs) that are within the solution of my project. I tried to use Server.MapPath but it throws an exception, which mentions that HttpContext.Current is null.

I tried Path.Combine(Environment.CurrentDirectory, @"img\logo.png") and it returns a route pointing to the local disk, but it's not what I need.

Deputy code extract:

   string pathPdf = Path.Combine(Environment.CurrentDirectory, @"img\logo.png");

Basically it is a service that sends an email with an attachment when a condition is met.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

When the code you are running does not run inside the main thread, HttpContext.Current is null and you can not access Server.MapPath . In those cases, a possible solution is to use HttpRuntume.AppDomainAppPath In your case it would be something like:

string path=Path.Combine(HttpRuntime.AppDomainAppPath, "img/logo.png");
