using System;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.SourceSafe.Interop;

public class IVSSTest
{
    private static void DisplayUsers(IVSSDatabase vssDatabase)
    {
        Console.Write("Database Users:");
        foreach(IVSSUser vssUser in vssDatabase.Users)
            Console.Write(" {0}", vssUser.Name);
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
 
    private static string GetUsername()
    {
        Console.Write("Enter Username: ");
        return Console.ReadLine();
    }

    private static string GetPassword()
    {
        Console.Write("Enter Password: ");
        return Console.ReadLine();
    }

    public static void Main()
    {
        // Create a VSSDatabase object.
        IVSSDatabase vssDatabase = new VSSDatabase();
        // Only SourceSafe Admin can add a new user.
        Console.WriteLine("Admin login");
        vssDatabase.Open(@"C:\VSSTestDB\srcsafe.ini", 
                         GetUsername(), GetPassword());
        DisplayUsers(vssDatabase);
        // Add new user to the database.
        Console.WriteLine("Add New User");
        IVSSUser vssUser = 
                 vssDatabase.AddUser(GetUsername(), GetPassword(), false);
        DisplayUsers(vssDatabase);
        // Remove a user from the database
        vssUser.Delete();
        DisplayUsers(vssDatabase);
