Default Included XSLT and use as object

I have an application that generates and XML file and i want to be able to run an XSLT on the file to generate multiple .HTMl files, i ahve the xslt included in my project but how do i call the XSLT file without using

"Transform.Load("\\\\<server>\\<User>\\<Website>\\ XSLT\\Services.xslt")

can i call the file that is included in my project instead of calling a file on my system?

or another question can i call the XSLT as an object or class? or a more dynmic way to call the XSLT without it being dependent on a specific file location?

What kind of project is it? I'll make the assumption that because you are turning XML into HTML that you are doing a web project.

If your XSLT lives in your project here:


then you can access the file this way:

    strXsltFile = MapPath("~/XSLT/Services.xslt");

This will do two things:
- Resolve the ~ into your application instance name (with or without virtual directories)
- Map the virtual path to the physical path of the web application.

You can embed an XSLT file into your DLL, it then becomes a resource.

In the solution explorer select the XSLT file and in the properties change it from "Content" to "Embedded Resource" to get it included in the dll.

If you have an XSLT file called "myXSLT.xslt" in an the root directory of an assembly called "Namespace.dll" then the following code will load the transform:

System.Reflection.Assembly assembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
Stream s = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("Namespace.myXSLT.xslt");

XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(s);
XslTransform t = new XslTransform();
