Hi experts,

I want to get the current userInfo from different aspx pages and therefore i want to put the ldap-code into a LDAPAuthentication.vb class-file. I tried this, but could not find out what I must do to get the value from the page.



Code for LDAPAuthentication.vb
****************************************************

    Public Function GetUserInfo(ByVal inSAM As String, ByVal inType As String) As String
        Try

            Dim sPath As String = "LDAP://directory.xxxxxxx.net/OU=Users,OU=xxxxx,DC=xxxxx,DC=xxxx,DC=net"
            Dim SamAccount As String = Right(inSAM, Len(inSAM) - InStr(inSAM, "\"))

            Dim myDirectory As New DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry(sPath, "xxxxxxx", "xxxxxxxxx") 'pass the user account and password for your Enterprise admin.
            Dim mySearcher As New DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher(myDirectory)
            Dim mySearchResultColl As DirectoryServices.SearchResultCollection
            Dim mySearchResult As DirectoryServices.SearchResult
            Dim myResultPropColl As DirectoryServices.ResultPropertyCollection
            Dim myResultPropValueColl As DirectoryServices.ResultPropertyValueCollection
            'Build LDAP query
            mySearcher.Filter = "(samaccountname=" & SamAccount & ")"

            mySearchResultColl = mySearcher.FindAll()

            'I expect only one user from search result

            Select Case mySearchResultColl.Count
                Case 0
                    Return "Null"
                    Exit Function
                Case Is > 1
                    Return "Null"
                    Exit Function
            End Select



            'Get the search result from the collection
            mySearchResult = mySearchResultColl.Item(0)



            'Get the Properites, they contain the usefull info
            myResultPropColl = mySearchResult.Properties



            'displayname, mail
            'Retrieve from the properties collection the display name and email of the user
            myResultPropValueColl = myResultPropColl.Item(inType)
            Return CStr(myResultPropValueColl.Item(0))



        Catch ex As System.Exception

            'do some error return here.

        End Try


    End Function





****************************************************
at the page for example default.aspx in code behind I want only put something like this


        Dim UserAccount As String = Page.User.Identity.Name
        Dim sDisplayName As String = GetUserInfo(UserAccount, "displayName")
        lblDisplayName.Text = sDisplayName


I would be very grateful if someone could help me.
Thank you

Hi lanter007,

Make it a shared function:

    Public Shared Function GetUserInfo(ByVal inSAM As String, ByVal inType As String) As String

Then use:

LDAPAuthentication.GetUserInfo(Me.SAMValue,Me.TypeValue)

Where SAMValue and TypeValue are replaced by the relevant pieces of information in each page.

I think you are in the right track .From all the pages you can call the function GetUserInfo by just creating an instance for LDApAuthentication class.What is the problem here..(Are you not able to get the logged in user name if so enable windows authentication inu r virtual directory)


Thanks,
Nanda
