Hello,
I am trying to create a custom ContentProvider to resize an uploaded image.  I am having a problem getting the physical file name in the StoreFile function.

I have the following code in the StoreFile Method
Dim outFile As String = "" 
 
outFile = MyBase.StoreFile(file, path, name, arguments)  
         

The problem is that outfile returns as a virtual path to the file, and not the physical path.  I have tried mybase.GetAbsolutePath(outfile) but it also just returns the virtual path "/imageUploads/testdir/"

It seems like it should be very straight forward, am I missing something?

It seems that I was missing something.  I was able to use the cantext.server.mappath to get the actual path.
