Master page image path problem in C#

Please visit my new Web Site

As you knew that master page uses absolute image URL which cause problem to reference an image inside other folder. The problem occurs due to below reasons:

1. Master page is in the root folder
2. Images under another root folder
3. Aspx pages under another root folder

As a result you will get "Image not found" or "Image file path not exist" error.

Scenarios like below will help you to understand the problem:
Master Page

To set the master page image path to reference an image based on above scenario you may write a code like:
<img alt="" src="Images/netmixerfinal.gif"/>

Which will creating the problem. The solution is simple and you may follow the below code to resolve the problem:
<img alt="" src="<%= Page.ResolveUrl("~")%>Images/netmixerfinal.gif"/>

If you not yet understand the problem then continue to read to run an example.
First add a master page then add a folder named images also add a folder named CRMModule. Now put an image under images folder plus add an aspx page(must include previously defined master page) under CRMModule folder.

Now modify the masterpage code like below:
<%@ Master Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MasterPage.master.cs" Inherits="MasterPage" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Master page Image path problem</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <img alt="" src="<%= Page.ResolveUrl("~")%>Images/netmixerfinal.gif"/>
        <hr />
        <asp:contentplaceholder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">

Now add a label in the container page and write something on it.
Now run the project and you will get something like below:

Master Page Output

Hope now referencing image path from master page has been resolved.
