infopath formula

Dear Sir
i create a form in infopath and connected to sharepoint form, all thing work fine.
i creata a field name "user" and i create a rule for this field from the infopath rule to display the username of the current user.
i use username() as rule.
and it is working fine, when a user from sharepoint open the form , his username is displaying in the "user" field.
but now i want to create a second field named "name" to display the name of the current user .
There is a list in sharepoint named "user information list" which contains all the information about users ( first name,last name,username, display name, company .....)
i want to create a rule in infopath for this field "name" to display the name for the current user using "user information list" .

how can i did it ??

you can achieve this by using infopath code behind , you should write a code to expose sharepoint list then to read fro this list and write the field that you want  .

You can do this in InfoPath without any code.

The key is filters.

When you set a fields value or make a default with a function.  Go to the user list and select the field with Display Name. Before selecting OK use the button on the lower left called filter.

Add a filter
Username = username()

This way you will get the display name from the list where username in the list is equal to the username() of the person opening the form.
