How to use iLogic code to fill username into iProperties?

A - answer The user's login name is available by default in the dialog Application options > General > User name. This name is automatically filled into the iProperty Summary > Author.

If you need to create other custom iProperties or if you want to overwrite the iProperty (field) "Author" with another form of the current user's name, e.g. with a full name and surname from the domain record, use the following iLogic code (inserts the login name into the user iProperty SavedBy, and the full name and surname into the standard property Author):

WSHnet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
UserName = WSHnet.UserName
UserDomain = WSHnet.UserDomain
objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & UserDomain & "/" & UserName & ",user")
UserFullName = objUser.FullName

iProperties.Value("Custom", "SavedBy") = ThisApplication.GeneralOptions.UserName
iProperties.Value("Summary","Author") = UserFullName
