Display the current logged in User details (Name, Id etc) in Visualforce Page

10:21 AM

Display the current logged in user's details using the global variable $User. An example is given below

<apex:page title="New" standardController="Account">
      Hello {!$User.FirstName} {!$User.LastName}

When you want to do the same in your Apex Class (i.e) get current logged in user information in your Apex Class, use the below method.

public String u {get; set;}
u = Userinfo.getUserId();
