HowDoIDisplayUserSNameUsingHisXWikiName

Question How can I display a user's first and last name using just the XWiki.username. ie Instead of having to John Smith>XWiki.jsmith can I just specify XWiki.jsmith and automatically display the first and last name ?
Answer You can use $xwiki.getUserName("XWiki.TheUser"), which automatically formats the username and also links to his/her profile.

If you don't want to link to the user profile, you can use $xwiki.getUserName("XWiki.TheUser", false).
