Web Custom Control - Retrieve Images from a Multifile Assembly - 09-04-2004 , 09:31 AM
How do I store an image and a web custom control's dll in a multifile
assembly so that the image can be retrieved and displayed while the control
is in design mode? This would allow the control to display a company logo
while in design and ensure that the logo's image file does not get deleted or
lost causing design mode problems.
I know that the possibility exists to have multifile assemblies which are
inclusive of the dll and other files. I found an example showing a web
application that retrieves text from a resource file embedded within a
multifile assembly. I can't find anything that deals with retrieving images
from a multifile assembly though.
Desired code example below:
/// Summary description for CustCtrl.
public class CustCtrl : System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl
protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter output)
public class CustCtrlDesigner : System.Web.UI.Design.ControlDesigner
public override string GetDesignTimeHtml()
// Retrieve multifile assembly image here ! ! ! ! !
string html="<img src=''>";

I think the VS.NET IDE cannot display the image directly from the assembly.
It displays the HTML code like IE. The image should have an actual location
when it is displayed. I suggest you may exact the image from the asembly
file, save it in a temporarily folder and generate a link string pointing
to it. For exacting a image from a assembly, you may refer to this article:

Hope this help,
