extracting user name

Postby amrsherif » Mon Jul 23, 2018 7:55 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to extract a user's username (or eviews registration name) by code. I'm trying to run a uidialog that would "remember" each user's last entries or choices. For this, i ceeated a user-specific database for each user.

For now, my workaround was to create a batch file that retrieves it, stores it as a text file which opens in eviews. This of course is a problem when a user is running on a server (without permissions to execute the batch file).

Thanks

It would be much better and more efficient if there is another way of having the ui remember the previous choices with using setmaxerrs, but I can't think of any
