Access Author Info Within A Widget (Within a Post)

Jul 22, 2009 at 3:02 PM


Does anyone know how to access the post author information? When a user reads a post, I want to display the author information within a widget.
I want to show the users Name, Description and Email address in a widget.

For example, if I wanted to just get the authors name of the relevant post, I want to achieve something like:
lblFName.Text = post.Author.ToString();


Any help appreciated.
