I am new to web forms, but how can I populate a web form (form fields i.e. name, job title, tel no etc) with that users information automatically taken from their active directory profile? It wouldd be an Intranet application so all users would be on the domain.
How is this done in ASP.net? In Coldfusion I would set the following variable
<cfset user = listLast(cgi.REMOTE_USER,"\") > which would grab the user id from AD
Then I would query an employee DB matching up the userid to gather their employee info
<cfquery name="querygetemp" datasource="DATASOURCE">
SELECT * FROM empl.directory
WHERE uPPER(NETWORK_ID) = '#ucASE(user)#'
and then set variables which I would use to populate the form fields further down the page
<cfset varsection = querygetemp.section>
<cfset varjob_title = querygetemp.job_title> etc...
Any ideas on how to get around this in ASP.NET?
