Get the current user without writing code

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
i have a question regarding the "Get the current user without writing code" tutorial. http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/itaysk/archive/2007/04/05/InfoPath-_2D00_-Get-the-current-user-without-writing-code.aspx?from=ClayCobb the url that i have to enter in the web service details is not working for me. do i have to use the same url for wss 3 also? maybe i have to ask this: can this be used for sharepoint services 3.0? i have enter: http://servername:portnumber/_vti_bin/UserProfileService.asmx  when i open it in a browser it gives me the sharepoint error page and when i insert the url in infopath it gives me this error: the file is not a valid XML file. The form contains XML that cannot be parsed: a string literal was expected, but no opening quote character was found. Line 19,position 38 <TABLE class="ms-main" CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0 BORDER=0 WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%">

Not able to get current windows user in RS2005 (but same code works for RS2000)

  

We use the following custom code (checkGroupMembership.dll) to get identity of the current windows user and then check if the user is part of a certain group (roleName in code below).  

SecurityPermission perm = new SecurityPermission(SecurityPermissionFlag.ControlPrincipal);
perm.Assert();
WindowsIdentity wi = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();
WindowsPrincipal cPrincipal = new WindowsPrincipal(wi);    
isMember = cPrincipal.IsInRole(roleName);

The code above behaves differently for RS2000 vs. RS2005. Both RS2000 and RS2005 are installed on same server. If I use the following code to check the WindowsPrincipal name, I get the expected result (my windows login ID) when called from a report in RS2000 but for RS2005 I get the user id of reporting services.

cPrincipal.Identity.Name.ToString();

I have checked rssrvpolicy.config (for both RS2000 and RS2005) and it has the same permission for checkGroupMembership.dll.

Any suggestions on why the same code will get different WindowsIdentity? Where I should look next? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!!


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).

Code Name Longhorn: A First Look at Writing and Deploying Apps in the Next Generation of Windows

  

The next version of the Microsoft Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," marks a significant change not only in terms of how the operating system works, but also in the way in which applications are built. The Longhorn version of Windows includes a new storage system, natural search technology, and an increased emphasis on security and trustworthy computing. Here the author provides an overview of Longhorn, focusing on the build-once, deploy n-times application model. In addition, he discusses the new language, code-named "XAML," that's used to create UI elements, then presents some working samples.

C# and the Web: Writing a Web Client Application with Managed Code in the Microsoft .NET Framework

  

When the author wanted to build a middleware Web client to connect to other applications over the Internet, he realized that the XMLHttpRequest COM object was not sufficient for his purposes. In order to build a Web client using managed code, the author had to use the HTTPWebRequest and HTTPWebResponse classes provided by the Microsoft .NET framework. These classes are used in the sample project as a substitute for the less powerful XMLHttpRequest COM object, allowing the author to build a full-featured Web client. They also take advantage of all the benefits that the CLR and managed code have to offer.

dynamically change html code when user is authenticated

  

So I have a fairly simple web site which allows an Administrator to edit some data in a database which is displayed on some web pages.


The main navigation on the site is shown in the code snippet below. The Admin link goes to a Login.aspx which allows the Administrator to log in - once authenticated they get sent to the data edit page.

So my question is, how could I dynamically add a link to the data edit page in the <ul> list below once the user is authenticated ?

This would allow the authenticated user to see links to the secure pages in the main navigation bar.


<%--Top Navigation Menu --%>
<div id="topMenu">
<ul>
<li><a href="default.aspx">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="introduction.aspx">Introduction</a></li>
<li><a href="curriculum.aspx">Curriculum</a></li>
<li><a href="times.aspx">Times & Fees</a></li>
<li><a href="staff.aspx">Staff</a></li>
<li><a href="login.aspx">Admin</a></li>
</ul>
</div><%--End of topMenu Container--%>
<div id="clear"></div><%--Floats items cleared End of Master Page--%>

How to make "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user" in vb code behind

  


I need to insert a declaration in the codebehind function below that will make the variable "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user". In what way do I need to change the code below (elsewhere in the project, I successfully make reference to basically the same code and make the UserId equal to logged-in user by using this handler expression inside an image control: ImageUrl ='<%# Eval("UserId","Image.aspx?UserId={0}")%>'...But in the case below, the function is not fired by this expression, but rather by CustomValidator). Thanks very much.

ThreadStateException was handled by user code

  
Hi, I am using VB.net and I am getting this error only in debugging mode. Current thread must be set to single thread apartment (STA) mode before OLE calls can be made. Ensure that your Main function has STAThreadAttribute marked on it. This exception is only raised if a debugger is attached to the process. The application works fine in release mode. Why? Please help.   Thanks
