hi,
in relation to the previous qn i asked,
can u pls guide me on how to return the user name in a char buffer? I need to pass this data to other functions and
I am facing difficulties converting it to char buffer.

char* GetLogin()
{
    NET_API_STATUS netStatus;
    WKSTA_USER_INFO_0 *buf;
   
    netStatus = NetWkstaUserGetInfo(NULL, 0, (LPBYTE *)&buf);
    //wprintf(_T("Username is %s\n"), buf->wkui0_username);
    //NetApiBufferFree(buf);
    return buf->wkui0_username;
}


int main(int argc, TCHAR* argv[])
{
      char* buf = GetLogin();
      cout<<buf<<endl;
        return 0;
}


Thanks.
Andrea

static char buff[256];
LPWKSTA_USER_INFO_0 pBuff = NULL;
NetWkstaUserGetInfo(NULL, 0, (LPBYTE*)&pBuff);
WideCharToMultiByte(CP_ACP, 0, (LPWSTR)pBuff->wkui0_username, -1, buff, sizeof buff, NULL, NULL);
return buff;

OOps, sorry.  Didn't notice the "for jhance" part.  You can reject it if you want jhance to get the points (although the answer is correct...)

although it was for jhance but he didn't take up this question
and your answer is correct so it is only right that
I give you the marks.

Thanks.

Actually I see no reason in restricting questions to a single expert (unless, of course, if those are "dummy" questions to award points).
