NetWkstaUserGetInfo function

The NetWkstaUserGetInfo function returns information about the currently logged-on user. This function must be called in the context of the logged-on user.

Syntax

NET_API_STATUS NET_API_FUNCTION NetWkstaUserGetInfo(
  LMSTR      reserved,
  DWORD      level,
  OUT LPBYTE *bufptr
);

Parameters

reserved

This parameter must be set to NULL.

level

Specifies the information level of the data. This parameter can be one of the following values.

Value Meaning
0
Return the name of the user currently logged on to the workstation. The bufptr parameter points to a WKSTA_USER_INFO_0 structure.
1
Return information about the workstation, including the name of the current user and the domains accessed by the workstation. The bufptr parameter points to a WKSTA_USER_INFO_1 structure.
1101
Return domains browsed by the workstation. The bufptr parameter points to a WKSTA_USER_INFO_1101 structure.

bufptr

Pointer to the buffer that receives the data. The format of this data depends on the value of the bufptr parameter. This buffer is allocated by the system and must be freed using the NetApiBufferFree function. For more information, see Network Management Function Buffers and Network Management Function Buffer Lengths.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is NERR_Success.

If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following error codes.

Return code Description
ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_MEMORY
The system ran out of memory resources. Either the network manager configuration is incorrect, or the program is running on a system with insufficient memory.
ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL
The level parameter is invalid.
ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER
One of the function parameters is invalid.

Remarks

The NetWkstaUserGetInfo function only works locally.

Examples

The following code sample demonstrates how to retrieve information about the currently logged-on user using a call to the NetWkstaUserGetInfo function. The sample calls NetWkstaUserGetInfo, specifying information level 1 ( WKSTA_USER_INFO_1). If the call succeeds, the sample prints information about the logged-on user. Finally, the sample frees the memory allocated for the information buffer.
