Hi guys, I am trying to connect to AD and want to be able to enter a group name and return all the members of that group.

I have no idea what I am doing or where to start.

I imagine that its not a lot of code I am looking for, am trying to build a tool for my service desk to use.

Any pointers in the right direction would be awesome.

And some other examples to get you started;
