Question: Asking IE for current user?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I don't think this is possible short of writing an ActiveX / browser plugin-type control, but I thought i would ask in case there's a hidden library..

Using ASP.NET (up to v4.0), is there a way to querty the browser (IE) for the user currently (successfully) logged into an AD server?

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).

create current user filter in sharepoint designer or wss3

hi, how can i create a current user filter in sharepoint designer?

The name 'User' does not exist in the current context.


Hey guys,

I've got a literal control to display the username of the user logged into our companies intranet system, originally I had a LoginName control but couldn't get strip to remove the domain from the username (as the format is domainname\username) so I'm trying it this way.

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        string[] Parts = User.Identity.Name.Split("\\");

        if (Parts.Length == 2)
            loginName.Text = Parts[1];
            loginName.Text = User.Identity.Name;


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        string[] Parts = User.Identity.Name.Split("\\");

output cache to be used only when parameter has changed + old question of user control not answered



i have 2 questions about output cache:

1.is it just me , or does it seems that it is used only after the second time that the user reaches the webpage? if so, why, and how can i tweak it to my needs? my guess is that it wouldn't be logical to cache every time a user reach a webpage, but only when it happens enough times.

2.i know that i can use "varybyparam" for using the output cache when the parameter doesn't change , but it seems that it would use the output cache even if there is no parameter , or if the specified paramter is not there. is there a way to overcome this?

3.an old question that somehow marked as "answered" , yet i didn't solve : suppose i created a user control and i gave it values through the CTOR via the aspx file . is it possible to show the values from within the split/design mode? remember that i've talking about ASP.NET and not simply C# winforms . i write this because this question was on :


and the answer that i got was for C# and winforms . i've tried to do the same for ASP.NET , but i've failed.

can anyone please help me?

How to determine if current SQL User is admin or owner?

I beleive I have all the information required: Servername Database name Windows/Database auth username (If database auth) password (if database auth) I'm trying to find a way that using the smo objects (smo.user), but as of yet I cant quite work it out: - How to get the appropriate user - How to determine if that user is an admin/owner. Any tips would be appreciated. If I have posted to the wrong forum, let me know - I couldnt find one that was obviously more appropriate. Thanks.

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

current user identity in custom security trimmer

The crux of my problem is that I want to impersonate  a user’s NTLM credentials in the context of a SharePoint custom security trimmer to execute HttpWebRequests to check user access to URLs.  When accessing WindowsIdentity.GetCurent() in the security trimmer, the System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity object returns the identity of the application pool running the search query service, NOT the currently logged in user.   When accessing System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrinciple.Identity in the security trimmer, the Microsoft.IdentityModel.Claims.ClaimsIdentity object of the current logged in user is returned.  However, there is a catch.  …   If I execute the following code in a .NET web application, the cast of the ClaimsIdentity to a WindowsIdentity succeeds because the identity has the authentication type of NTLM.    WindowsIdentity winId = (WindowsIdentity)System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal.Identity; WindowsImpersonationContext wic = winId.Impersonate(); request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials; //access means a response comes back when a request is made to the url using (HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse()) { returnStatus = true; } wic.Undo(); However, when I execute the same code in the context of the SharePoint security trimmer (the search query service li

Dynamically adding User Controls -- newbie question!

I am new to ASP.NET (coming from ColdFusion, thank goodness I'm away from that!).  And I am have THE hardest time understanding how to work with forms in ASP.NET.  Here's what I am doing:Dynamically add User Controls to a PlaceHolder based on some int value (which currently is passed in a HiddenField).Fire an event if the WebControls inside of the User Control change, then handle that event in the Main Page (i.e. save the input to DB)When the user clicks the "Next/Continue" button, the next controls for the next page are loaded.And I guess maybe I just can't seem to get how things work in ASP.NET, because I am really struggling with the general idea of how ASP.NET flows.  Should I be dynamically loading the controls in Page_Init, or Page_Load?  Or should I load the controls when the buttonclick event is fired?Do I have to add the axCtrl.OnDataChange += new EventHandler(HandleAxControlDataChange); line on Page_Load?  Or should I put this in When I first load the UserControl, I need to initialize some WebControls within the UserContorl.  Is there a way to know if I have loaded new user controls into my placeholder?  I can't use Page.IsPostback, because after the first page, every page is a postback from the buttonclick.Any help for this confused newbie would be GREATLY appreciated!!Here's what I have: pu
