Hi, this is a great project!!!
I'm using sample class MultipleLDAP and works great, my question is, how can I add filters to search?

Regards.

hello,
thanks for your feedback.
Can you please explain what exactly you mean with "filters"?
Do you mean on the LDAP query itself?
cheers,

hello Sergio,
unfortunately DirectorySearcher object doesn't provide any way to easily add/remove criteria from filter.
So only way to customize the query is to manually edit the DirectorySearcher.Filter string, which is not going to be easy since you'll have to add characters at different locations (due to the structure of LDAP queries), and I'm not talking about the risks of editing a LDAP query as a plain string...
