Question Active Directory connection and password reset


New member

Hi there,

I am very new to c# and I am looking at creating a very basic application, that would allow a member of teaching staff at our college to insert a Student ID number, then click on a reset password button that would reset the password in Active Directory to a defined password in the code.

The form I have created looks like this;


What is the simplest method to set up an Active Directory connection in the application and how can I make sure that the password being reset is the password of the entered Student ID.

I would really appreciate any advice/help that you can give me.

Kind Regards
