Retrieving all (nested) members of a Group


You can assign permissions to users, SharePoint groups and Active Directory groups in SharePoint. While SharePoint groups cannot contain other SharePoint groups, it is possible to nest Active Directory Groups. The SharePoint method SPGroup.Users only returns users that are added directly to the SharePoint Group. I have written a small function that is able to retrieve all users of a SPPrincipal object, included nested users.
