How do I get the app to display the logged in user by their real name and not their username? I have searched and searched and found nothing. Thanks in advance.

I would use the GetColumnValue with a literal as long as the real name is in your user table.

Place a literal on the page then under the Properties, Actions, Initialize display text use the formula below.

= GetColumnValue("Tbl_Users",Username0,"Full_Name")

The normal format is below when using GetColumnValue.

= GetColumnValue("Table_Your_Looking_Up_Value_In",Key Column,"Column Name You want Retrieved")

GetColumnValue is not consistent and behaves erratically.
It may or may not return results... See so many posts on this forum itself..


I would recommend using CCW - Store Extra Info on Login
This enables you to store the user name, first/lastname, phone etc. in a session variable.
And this session variable is available on all pages irrespective of the level of the page.
Whether it is parent, child,grandchild the session var can be used.

The only time I've ever had a problem with GetColumnValue is when the column you're using as the key is not the primary key. Then I just create a view of the table and make the username field the virtual key. This has worked very consistently for me.

I think you guys misunderstand. I don't want to add it I want to change the existing feature.
