Hi Felipe ,
Gennerally, in order for
the image manager to work properly, you should set the ImagesPaths property to point to either:
- a subfolder of your web application hosting the images files (for example named "Images")
- a virtual directory of your web application that has a physical path pointing outside of your web application (for example named "Images")
- a shared drive that is a virtual folder of your web application. You can see the following KB article for more information: http://www.telerik.com/Default.aspx?PageId=2514&b454K=UmA&b454T=V (Uploading images and files to a Shared Drive).
subfolder of your web application hosting the images files ( example named "Images")
The image manager does not accept any physical or URL paths, due to web standards and limitations. You can see the following KB article for more information on uploading images to the server: http://www.telerik.com/Default.aspx?PageId=2514&b454K=xJX&b454T=D (ID#630).
Since the image source is outiside your application, you should use relative paths and/or create a virtual directory.
The virtual directory should not be a web application and should reside within your application root in IIS. Then you can point to it by name.
Please ensure that the Virtual Directory is not a web application (see screenshot): To check this, open IIS and locate your root application folder, and find the newly created Virtual Directory under it.
Right-click on the VirtualDirectory and click the properties option. In the Application name section, click the Remove button ( if enabled, it means the Virtual folder is a web application)
