How to get the source of an image in a plugin

  • Hi,

    I am new to wordpress plugin development and making a plugin which essentially gives me a widget to add in my sidebar. What I want to do is to add a title, then an image and a phone number and some text in the widget. Now the image will be hardcoded and user need not upload that. I have created my plugin and it is working fine. But I can’t display the image.

    This is the code relevant to getting the image displayed:

    function widget($args,$instance)
    	{
    		extract($args, EXTR_SKIP);
    		$title = ($instance['title'])? $instance['title']: 'Call Us Now';
    		$phone =($instance['phone']) ? $instance['phone']:'+91 9989976543';
    		$body = ($instance['body'])? $instance['body']: 'Call now text';
    		?>
    		<?php echo $before_widget; ?>
    		<?php echo $before_title. $title. $after_title ?>
    		<img src="icon.png"/>
    		<p><?php echo $body?></p>
    		<?php
    	}

    My plugin directory structure is like this:
    -plugin_file.php
    -style.css
    -icon.png

    Can someone tell me how to get this image icon.png inserted in my frontend display of plugin. It basically adds a Call Us block in the sidebar which says your number besides an icon and some text.

    Thanks,
