Here are my events:

<%@ Import Namespace="System.DirectoryServices" %>

<script runat="server">

 public ArrayList Groups()
    {
        ArrayList groups = new ArrayList();
        foreach (System.Security.Principal.IdentityReference group in
            System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.LogonUserIdentity.Groups)
        {
            groups.Add(group.Translate(typeof
                (System.Security.Principal.NTAccount)).ToString());
        }
        return groups;
    }
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        dGroups.DataSource = Groups();
        dGroups.DataBind();
    }

Open in new window


My question is - how do I display the results in a list box?  I can not seem to get all my settings/preferences correct:

<asp:DropDownList ID="dGroups" runat="server"  DataTextField="ArrayList" DataValueField="Department" onselectedindexchanged="" 
        AutoPostBack="True" AppendDataBoundItems="True">
        <asp:ListItem Value="0">Select</asp:ListItem>
      </asp:DropDownList>

So, if I want the Active Directory Groups to display in a listbox in the body of my form, I do not need to reference the event?

I have added the code to my form.  No errors, but the list box/drop down list with the Active Directory groups is not displaying on my form.  Here is what I added:
 public ArrayList Groups()
    {
        ArrayList groups = new ArrayList();
        foreach (System.Security.Principal.IdentityReference group in
            System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.LogonUserIdentity.Groups)
        {
            groups.Add(group.Translate(typeof
                (System.Security.Principal.NTAccount)).ToString());
        }
        return groups;
    }
    public ArrayList AttributeValuesMultiString(string attributeName,
     string objectDn, ArrayList valuesCollection, bool recursive)
    {
        DirectoryEntry ent = new DirectoryEntry(objectDn);
        PropertyValueCollection ValueCollection = ent.Properties[attributeName];
        IEnumerator en = ValueCollection.GetEnumerator();

        while (en.MoveNext())
        {
            if (en.Current != null)
            {
                if (!valuesCollection.Contains(en.Current.ToString()))
                {
                    valuesCollection.Add(en.Current.ToString());
                    if (recursive)
                    {
                        AttributeValuesMultiString(attributeName, "LDAP://" +
                        en.Current.ToString(), valuesCollection, true);
                    }
                }
            }
        }
        ent.Close();
        ent.Dispose();
        return valuesCollection;
    }

    public ArrayList Groups(string userDn, bool recursive)
    {
        ArrayList groupMemberships = new ArrayList();
        return AttributeValuesMultiString("memberOf", userDn,
            groupMemberships, recursive);
    }
