I guess I could query the database directly rather than trying to use the UserManager service.
That is the way to do it....I suggest running a query against the EDCPRINCIPALUSERENTITY table. You could get the results back as a comma delimeted list an populate a hidden field. When the form loads you could extract prgrammatically put the list into the dropdown. I have done this intractively via a web service. If you want my sample, post your email address and I will pass it along.
Unfortunately you would have to convert it over to XML. This is a pain.
Paul's technique would probably be quicker but we try to prevent people from hitting the database directly since there is not guarantee it won't change in future release (although not likely).
I'll log an enhancement request to also have the option of getting the data as xml.
if you are using Flex it is easy to use FindUsers, if not I have a custom component which returns the users in xml format
let me know
