WebResource.axd mystery solved

07 May 2008 – .NET and Programming

Clearly blog posts have been very sparse here, so I'm going to try something new. Whenever I find a good article or web site that helps me solve a particular problem I'm having, I'll try to dash off a quick post referencing it. This'll help me locate the information if I need it again later, and maybe it will help someone else find what they're looking for too.

Have you ever noticed those strange "WebResource.axd" URLs that ASP.NET likes to generate? I recently needed to return a JavaScript resource from a custom ASP.NET control and wondered if I could take advantage of "WebResource.axd" myself. Via ASP.NET blogger Jeff Putz, Using WebResource.axd for embedded resources shows you how.
