    Getting Windows Username

    Guddie Level 1

      From everywhere I've read, there is no way to get the client's Windows username from Flex. You can call on JavaScript that returns the strings, but it takes low browser security settings for it to work. Is there any other way to accomplish this? I was thinking that maybe using Flourine and calling a function in ASP.NET would work, but it would probably just return the username of the server.

       

      Any ideas would be much appreciated. I'm not looking for the simplest answer (though that would be great), just something that works and doesn't violate security.

       

      Thanks in advance.
