Examples

The following example creates a DirectoryEntry for the node in the Active Directory Domain Services. It then displays the Name and Path properties of its child nodes.

Dim myADSPath As String = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,DC=onecity,  
           _DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com"  
Dim myDirectoryEntry As New DirectoryEntry(myADSPath)  

Console.WriteLine("DirectoryEntry Name :" + myDirectoryEntry.Name)  
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine _  
        + "The child entries for this node in the Active Directory Domain Services hierarchy")  

Dim myDirectoryEntryChild As DirectoryEntry  
For Each myDirectoryEntryChild In  myDirectoryEntry.Children  
   Console.WriteLine(myDirectoryEntryChild.Path)  
Next myDirectoryEntryChild  
String myADSPath = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,  
             DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";  
DirectoryEntry myDirectoryEntry=new DirectoryEntry(myADSPath);  

Console.WriteLine("DirectoryEntry Name :"+ myDirectoryEntry.Name);  
Console.WriteLine("\nThe child entries for this node "+  
   "in the Active Directory Domain Services hierarchy");  

foreach(DirectoryEntry myDirectoryEntryChild in  
   myDirectoryEntry.Children)  
{  
   Console.WriteLine(myDirectoryEntryChild.Path);  
}  
String^ myADSPath = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";  
DirectoryEntry^ myDirectoryEntry = gcnew DirectoryEntry(myADSPath);  

Console::WriteLine("DirectoryEntry Name : {0}", myDirectoryEntry->Name);  
Console::WriteLine("\nThe child entries for this node in the Active Directory Domain Services hierarchy");  

Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnumerator = myDirectoryEntry->Children->GetEnumerator();  
while (myEnumerator->MoveNext())   
{  
    DirectoryEntry^ myDirectoryEntryChild = safe_cast<DirectoryEntry^>(myEnumerator->Current);  
    Console::WriteLine(myDirectoryEntryChild->Path);  
}  

Remarks

This name, along with SchemaClassName, distinguishes this entry from its siblings and must be unique among its siblings in each container.
