Yes, there's one called NetUserGetInfo.

NET_API_STATUS
NetUserGetInfo (

    LPWSTR servername,      
    LPWSTR username,      
    DWORD level,      
    LPBYTE * bufptr      
   );

Look up API help for more information.

I had a quick look at this but couldn't quickly find how this works in the help. Javiertb, I think you owe him some more details ;^)

So you propose that he runs through all the users on the system and check if each of them is logged in. This might take some time ... HMMMM I am sure there must be a better way out there somewhere to do this ...

No,that wasn't my propose. Just a little missunderstanding. What I think you should use is the function NetUserEnum.

Hope this works.

javiertb: Read the god damn question before you answer it.

NetUserGetInfo retrieves arbitrary information about a user account.

NetUserEnum is used to enumerate the users which have an account on a given computer.

To retrieve a list of who is currently logged on to the server, use the delphi function below. It uses functions from the MS port of the LAN Manager functions, therefore it will only run under NT, not windows 95. You can query any NT computer using this function.

-----
type
  PWkstaUserInfo0 = ^TWkstaUserInfo0;
  TWkstaUserInfo0 =
    record
      username    : PWideChar;
    end;
  PWkstaUserInfo0Array = ^TWkstaUserInfo0Array;
  TWkstaUserInfo0Array = ARRAY [0..0] of TWkstaUserInfo0;

function NetWkstaUserEnum
  (ServerName : PWideChar;
  level       : DWORD;
  buffer      : POINTER;
  prefmaxlen  : DWORD;
  var
    EntriesRead,
    TotalEntries,
    ResumeHandle   : DWORD) : INTEGER; stdcall;
    external 'NETAPI32.DLL';

function NetApiBufferFree
  (Buffer : POINTER) : INTEGER; stdcall;
  external 'NETAPI32.DLL';


procedure GetLoggedOnUsers (Server : STRING; Users : TStrings);
var
  ui0        : PWkstaUserInfo0Array;
  wcServer   : ARRAY [0..MAX_PATH] OF WIDECHAR;
  Ndx,
  Error,
  EntriesRead,
  EntriesTotal,
  ResumeHandle   : DWORD;

begin
  ResumeHandle := 0;
  StringToWideChar(Server, wcServer, MAX_PATH);
  repeat
    Error := NetWkstaUserEnum
      (wcServer, 0, @ui0, 10000,
      EntriesRead, EntriesTotal, ResumeHandle);

    if (Error<>0) and (Error <> ERROR_MORE_DATA) then begin
      NetAPIBufferFree(ui0);
      raise Exception.CreateFmt('NetWkstaUserEnum failed with error #%d', [Error]);
    end;

    for Ndx := 0 to EntriesRead-1 do
      Users.Add(WideCharToString(ui0^[ndx].username));

    NetAPIBufferFree(ui0);
  until EntriesRead=EntriesTotal;
end;
-----

To test this thing, create a form with a button, a editbox and a listbox, and create this OnClick handler:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Listbox1.Clear;
  GetLoggedOnUsers(Edit1.Text, Listbox1.Items);
end;

Then, type the name of any NT computer in the edit, click the button and the Listbox will fill with the login names of the logged on users on the computer. Note that this function will not return the names of users which has connected to shares on the computer, as these are not logged on to the computer, but rather to the domain.

If this does what you need colonna, please reject javiertb's answer and allow me to submit this. Or better even, reject javiertb anyway, because his answer has nothing to do with what you've asked.

javiertb: Why can't you start reading the questions, work out an answer and then when you know it works, submit it. You're just being annoying when you keep providing bad and often plain incorrect answers.


Regards,

Erik.
