webpart to show current windows user

  Asked By: Vaughn    Date: Apr 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2329

Does anyone have a webpart that would show the current windows user?

It would make development a bit easier if I could drop it here and there so I’d always know the security context when using test accounts.

At weblogs.asp.net/jan/archive/2004/03/11/88118.aspx, Lead-It Essentials has Navigation, MyAlerts, Breadcrumbs, and WhatsNew webparts, but none of them really show  the current  user’s account name.

I've made one a couple of months ago. It's quite easy
to code it extracting the user  data by using the SPS
UserProfiles. All other data, such as email etc, is
also available from there. But again, you need
impersonation for that.

I’ve loaded it recently and the webpart  to display the user  name was in it!
