Get NT Userid in C# without Domain

Hey guys

How can I get the current NT username but without the Domain name in front?

I've done this, but this gives me domainname\username

Label1.Text = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString();

I know I can do it with String manipulation but i've got different domain names and this will get too tricky.

Any advice?

Hello SasfinSD,

Label1.Text = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString().Split(new Char [] {'\'})[1];

Should do it regardless of the domain name.

Nope. I get a warning - Too many characters in character literal

Should be \\ of course for c#:

Label1.Text = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString().Split(new Char [] {'\\'})[1];
