public string SchemaClassName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the schema class for this DirectoryEntry object.

This is the same as the Name property of the SchemaEntry property.

A DirectoryEntry object's schema defines its properties and methods.

The following example demonstrates the SchemaClassName and SchemaEntry properties of the DirectoryEntry class. This example gets the user-specified DirectoryEntry and gets all of its children if the SchemaEntry is a container object. The SchemaEntry is a container object if the Name of that object is "container".

String myADSPath = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";

// Creates an Instance of DirectoryEntry.
DirectoryEntry  myDirectoryEntry=new DirectoryEntry(myADSPath, UserName, SecurelyStoredPassword);

// Display the 'SchemaClassName'.
Console.WriteLine("Schema class name:" + myDirectoryEntry.SchemaClassName);

// Gets the SchemaEntry of the ADS object.
DirectoryEntry mySchemaEntry = myDirectoryEntry.SchemaEntry;

if (string.Compare(mySchemaEntry.Name, "container") == 0)
   foreach(DirectoryEntry myChildDirectoryEntry in myDirectoryEntry.Children)
