using three ways we can get the User Name using C#

1) System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal p = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal as System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal;

string strName = p.Identity.Name;

[ OR ]

2) string strName = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name.ToString();

[ OR ]

3) string strName = Request.ServerVariables["AUTH_USER"]; //Finding with name

string strName = Request.ServerVariables[5]; //Finding with index

In Above 3 Cases returnin string contains DomainName\WinNTLoggedUserName

Using string operations seperate the DomainName and UserName.

In window application (VB.Net)use this
on login form...
SaveSetting("AnyName", "Properties", "UserID",txtName.text)

Now on any form u can get that value by....
Dim UserId As string = GetSetting("AnyName", "Properties", "UserID")


From TheScript

To get the current user, better switch to .NET:
