    Current User?


    Hello,

    I'm wondering if it's possible to get the credential details for the currently logged in user on from the OS?

    I haven't been able to find any details on this.

    Cheers,
    Timothy Grant Vogelsang

    This is not an ExtJS related question.

    The answer to your question depends on the server side language and the OS your server is running.

    Kind of a hack, but its a way to get the currently logged in user name.

    Code:
    var up = air.File.userDirectory.nativePath;
    var upa = up.split('\\');
    var user = upa[upa.length-1];
    Works in windows XP, Vista, 98, etc. It would need to be modified to work on a OSX or *NIX environment, simple change tho.

    @iulian - I think you might have overlooked the fact that this is an AIR/ExtJS question and not server side related.

    Indeed, sorry! I read this thread in the RSS reader and I overlooked that is posted in the AIR section.

    By the way, nice trick you have there!

    Great, I will give that a go.

    And no problem iulian, I realized my topic was kind of not descriptive anyways
