Retrieving File from Current Portal Skin Directory

We're trying to grab an .ascx from the current portal's/current skin directory so we can insert it into a custom module's view page.  Can anyone explain how to do this?

Well, I figured out how to use


to locate the current directory.

What we're trying to do is pull in an .ascx from the portal's skin directory that has a custom layout.  However, the controls on the differnt pages will always be the same (with the same ID) from portal to portal, it's just the layout will be different.

Is there a way to grab that file and stuff it into the 'View...ascx' file used by the custom module?  Maybe use a placeholder on the View page that we then cram the .ascx from the protal's skin directory into?

Can you stick a user control into another user control using the Page_Load event to determine where directory we're going to pull from?

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks for any help.

Files Both In Directory and Not In Directory
I have run into a very strange situation/problem. If files are copied using the MS copy command in this manner: copy g:\testfile.txt "i:\archive\" the command reports the file is copied. Using any file browser in Windows or at the server the file does not show up in the directory listing. However, if you try to create a file by the same name in the destination directory it tells you it cannot because there is already a file with that name. I don't know what the quotes are for in the copy command. This was from a batch file that someone else set up. It does work as nor...

DotNetNuke file / directory security
Did anyone ever do a full security break down on DNN3 ? I mean the minimum needed security (read/write/change/full) per directory (or even per file)? I'm creating another setup project and need to set the minimum required security to get DNN to work (only when it's a local install of course). I have a rough idea what the minimum security would be, but maybe someone created a list that I could use? Geert Veenstra Sorry to 'bump' this question. It was probably too early for some (and not on the first page anymore).... ;-) .Geert Veenstra Geert, i'm not sure if this helps...
