I would like to get a persons name from their username - a common query on forums i know, but i haven't managed to get mine working yet and any help would be appreciated.
I currently have this code that I found here: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=612655 (Thanks Chris128)
I have adapted it from VB into VB.net. The page renders but when i enter my username into the Username textBox and hit the submit button (Which calls IsUser) I just get "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have tried lots of other code but I always get this response...
If anyone can help by posting links to a tutorial or another post for code that they know works, i will give it a go.
