But some times Spcontext.current.web.currentuser.name will return name of the user who is currently logged in it is retruning user name other than the current. When I refresh the page two or three times It will return the proper user name. Can anyone help me to resolve this issue.

Get current logon user id with SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.LoginName

Hi all,I've been trying to search for the method to display the currently logon user id. So far, most sites I've visited used SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.LoginName.I've tried this in my SharePoint custom application page. Everything works great.I have a test account, when logged in, was displayed as xxx\testacc.For some reasons, I changed the id in AD to xxx\test and did a full import to MOSS.I logged in to the custom application with the changed id, i.e. xxx\test, BUT the value of SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.LoginName still displayed as xxx\testacc!How do I get the latest id? Has anyone encountered this before?Thank you.Kelvin

I am using FBA in an internet zone of sharepoint site.

SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser null in application page on 2008 r2 server

With my current situation I have:
a wss3 development environment on a 2003 R2 server
then a production 2008 r2 server.

For some reason on the 2008 server the SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser object is null for users who are site collection administrators but may not have permission to log into the server itself; however, on the 2003 R2 server the code works fine for those users.
When googling around, I had seen something about nt permissions on the bin folder sometimes being and issue until asp.net cache picks up the dll but this is a page in the _layouts directory and the code is in the .aspx page itself. It works fine for me as a system administrator on either machine.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser returns inconsistent username (With different characters)



We are using MOSS 2007 with browser enabled Infopath forms. We have a user with username "DOMAINNAME\fakgul" (Active Directory also displays the user as this). However when the user opens an Infopath form  the code line behind the form below:

SPUser openedByUser = SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser;

returns "DOMAINNAME\fakgül" (with "U-umlaut"). When we enter the "User information" page of that user, "Account" field also displays as "DOMAINNAME\fakgül" (with "U-umlaut").

What is more strange is this is not the consist

SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.Name returns complete value claims

SPContext.Current is null In Custom Membership ValidateUser


Hi,I just get a problem getting SPContext.Current in Custom membership Provider.

We have successfully plugin the custom membership into Sharepoint foundation 2010. We tried to programmically update the user's full name after user logs in and it failed in 2010 version. (good in 2007)

This is the simplified code. The class is a custom membership provider.Strangely, this only happens in 2010 version and never raised a problem in 2007.

public override bool ValidateUser(string username, string password)
   bool isvalid = false;

    if(username=="admin" && password="pwd")
      isvalid = true;
     var webContext = SPContext.Current.Web; //this returns null

   catch (System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException exp)
    Logger.WriteLog(exp.InnerException.ToString(), "wss login error");
   return isvalid;


Please Help. Thank you.



SPContext.Current.Web is not latest


I am creating a list with a deployed list template. with the following code:

SPSite site = new SPSite("http://servername");
SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();

.Lists.Add(listName, listName, listTemplate);
SPList List = Web.Lists[listName]

Why is FieldValue and SPContext.Current.Item["DateColumn"] different?


I have a custom application page which i am using to format the SPListItem in a particular layout. On this page I am showing a datetime field as:

 <SharePoint:FieldValue runat="server" FieldName="IssueDate" id="FieldValue13"/>

But its showing me -1 day of the original value of IssueDate. So 10/5/2010 shows as 10/4/2010. I have solved this by formatting the value manually :

 <%= SPContext.Current.Item["IssueDate"].ToString() %>   

my question is why would FieldValue show -1 of the original value?

properties of SPContext.Current returns null after migration



I use stsadm export to migrate my site from one machine to another. After migration, I found one of my webpart does not work. It throws a null reference exception.

I logged my webpart and found it cannot get SPContext.Current.Web and SPContext.Current.List, the both returns null and cause the exception. I removed the webpart and added it again but the exception still occured. However, I created a new List on the new site then put my webpart in and it works fine.

I think it is because my migration operattion, is there anything need attention during migration?  Why SPContext.Current cannot get properties?

Hi friend,

you can use this thread to solving problem and solutions.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).
