Those all look similar to how I would query active directory.  In this case I'm not querying active directory, but it is another ldap directory.  Can I do the same thing?  Below is some code in vbs that gets the attribute I need.  I just need to so the same thing in .net

Function getTitleInfo (userid)
 objCommand.CommandText =  "SELECT TITLE FROM 'LDAP://ldapapi/ou=people,o=My Domain' WHERE unixid='" & userid & "'"
 Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
 On Error Resume Next
 While Not objRecordSet.EOF
   For Each i in objRecordSet.fields
      For Each v in i.value
         MsgBox(v) 'here I get the title info I was looking for...how can I do this in .net?
      Next
   Next
   objRecordSet.MoveNext
 Wend
 objConnection.close
End Function
