I want to develop a custom plugin, where i need to be able to search a user by its name. maybe i am looking at the wrong place, but the documentation is not covering this topic. i found some examples like:


therefore i see that it is possible to do simething like what i want to do.
Is this "BOL_UserService" somewhere documented?

Can i use it to search a user by its name? or part of his name?

any help is appreciated or pls point me to the direction where i can find informations.

I know this plugin, but i need it inside my own plugin. and i need to be able to use the search results.

i need a possibility to make a username search inside my plugin and work with the search results for further actions.

is there really no explanation of how to use BOL_UserService::getInstance()->getDisplayName($id);?
