Hello,

I am trying to create an easy console one button, one textbox. If I click the button the display name will appear in text box. I added "using System.DirectoryServices;". There could be hardcoded the samaccountname. This is only for me to understand how to get these parameters in C#.

And how to manage it in:

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            DirectorySearcher Dsearch = new DirectorySearcher(entry);
            DSearch.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(l=" + Name + "))";
            ???
            textbox1.text = ??
        }

Many Thanks

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.DirectoryServices;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
	class Program
	{
		static void Main(string[] args)
		{
			DirectorySearcher searcher = new DirectorySearcher();
			searcher.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=tgerbert))";

			Console.WriteLine("Matching entries:");
			foreach (SearchResult result in searcher.FindAll())
			{
				DirectoryEntry entry = result.GetDirectoryEntry();
				Console.WriteLine(entry.Properties["displayName"].Value.ToString());
			}

			Console.ReadKey();
		}

Would be possible to put it into:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.DirectoryServices;

namespace GetUserFromAD
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
        }

Same code, just change Console.WriteLine to MessageBox.Show, etc.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.DirectoryServices;

namespace GetUserFromAD
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
	DirectorySearcher searcher = new DirectorySearcher();
	searcher.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=tgerbert))";

	foreach (SearchResult result in searcher.FindAll())
	{
		DirectoryEntry entry = result.GetDirectoryEntry();
		MessageBox.Show(entry.Properties["displayName"].Value.ToString());
	}
        }
