Illegal characters in path. ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1103495211 posted

    I've got an error:  "Illegal characters in path." But i don't understand why ?

    The code is:

    png = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["localpath"] + "images\actie.png";
    imgF = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(@png);

    In my Web.config i have:

     <add key="localPath" value="C:\websites\HV tweewielers\" />

    The error is on the last row, if u get with the arrow on @png i get: C:\\websites\\HV tweewielers\\images\actie.png
    But the path is correct ... Quite strange because it works perfect if i add: c:\websites\hv tweewielers\images\actie.png ....

    Hi,

    Based on my experience, the character "@" is fit to the value of the string and it is not suitable for the variable.

    The space doesnt mather, i changed the png part in:

    png = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["localPath"] + @"images\actie.png";
    imgF = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(png);

    Like this it works great but @ doesnt work well for a string.. strange
