How To Get URL To Root Of Web Application?

Character ~ (tilde) represents the root of the web application folder. You can use this HTML code to make link to home page:

<a href="~/" runat="server">Home Page</a>

Note that you must have runat="server" to make this works.

This facility is very useful when you develop web application on localhost because you can avoid ugly URL like href="/YourWebApplicationName/".

Instead of tilde (~) character, you can use it encoded as %7e, so the code will be:

<a href="%7e/" runat="server">Home Page</a>
