Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the object as named with the underlying directory service.

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

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.

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);
}
