Displaying Current User Display Name in SPD Custom Forms

  • Open the custom page in Advanced Mode using SharePoint Designer
  • Find the section of the page where “ParameterBinding” are set. Add this new entry:  <ParameterBinding> Name = “LogonUser” Location = “ServerVariable(LOGON_USER)” />
  • Next search for “XSL:Param name”, and add this line: <xsl:param name=”LogonUser”/>
  • Now to display the value in the form use the below tag where ever you want: <xsl:value-of select=”$LogonUser”/>
