While using Powerbuilder , some times we might need to get the userprofile path for accesssing .ini files . The below piece of code will be very helpfull for that . Also you can get the usernames, user domain , app data path, temp data path,etc., using this method

String ls_keyword, ls_values []

ContextKeyword lcx_key
this.GetContextService ("Keyword", lcx_key)
ls_keyword = "userprofile" //substitute userprofiles with the other //keywords based on your requirement
lcx_key.GetContextKeywords (ls_keyword, ls_values)

MessageBox (ls_keyword, ls_values[1])
