I am trying to create an auto complete textbox in VB.net using username in LDAP
I am using this in other parts of the code.

Public Shared Function GetUser(ByVal UserName As String) As DirectoryEntry
    'create an instance of the DirectoryEntry
    Dim dirEntry As DirectoryEntry = GetDirectoryObject("/" + GetLDAPDomain())

    'create instance fo the direcory searcher
    Dim dirSearch As New DirectorySearcher(dirEntry)

    dirSearch.SearchRoot = dirEntry
    'set the search filter
    dirSearch.Filter = "(&(objectCategory=user)(cn=" + UserName + "))"
    'deSearch.SearchScope = SearchScope.Subtree;

    'find the first instance
    Dim searchResults As SearchResult = dirSearch.FindOne()

    'if found then return, otherwise return Null
    If Not searchResults Is Nothing Then
        'de= new DirectoryEntry(results.Path,ADAdminUser, _
             ADAdminPassword,AuthenticationTypes.Secure);
        'if so then return the DirectoryEntry object
        Return searchResults.GetDirectoryEntry()
    Else
        Return Nothing
    End If
End Function
Can it be done?
