Getting User Login under Windows NT

Posted on 2000-03-06

Last Modified: 2010-05-02
I'm programming a multiuser application under Windows NT.
My program should be able to identify a user by his NT-Login name.
I know that there is a DLL-Method which returns the userID of the current user. But I don't know which DLL does this.

Perhaps someone can help me.

Use this:

Private Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpbuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim sBuffer As String
    Dim lSize As Long


    sBuffer = Space$(255)
    lSize = Len(sBuffer)
    Call GetUserName(sBuffer, lSize)
    If lSize > 0 Then
        txtUserName.Text = Left$(sBuffer, lSize)
    Else
        txtUserName.Text = vbNullString
    End If
End Sub

Private Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim strUser As String * 25
    GetUserName strUser, 25
    MsgBox strUser
End Sub

This will get the user name of the currently logged in user.
