Getting the user name of the currently logged in user

I'm writing my first custom module. Just as an experimental project I would just display information about the currently logged in user.

I can get the User Id, but I don't know where to get the rest of the information. How do I get this?

Just create a new UserController to get the information about one user via the method GetUser(PortalId, UserId) and store it into a UserInfo. Then you can get the rest of the information from this UserInfo
Dim myUser As New UserInfo
Dim myUserController As New UserController
myUser = myUserController.GetUser(PortalId, UserId)
' And then for instance '
Dim myUserName As String = myUser.UserName
Dim myUserEmail As String = myUser.Email
' and so on ... '

Many thanks, that worked - I'm using C# (I should have said, but I can read VB.NET anyway) so my code looks like this:

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
UserController theUserController = new UserController();
UserInfo theUser = theUserController.GetUser(PortalId, UserId);
UserIdLabel.Text = this.UserId.ToString();
UserNameLabel.Text = theUser.Username;
