How can I display the current username in the header?

I am trying to use: $this->viewer()->username in a PHP block in the header (see screenshot) to write out the current user's username, but it's not working? Maybe that value is not available in that context? Does anyone know any other options to write out the current username?

    You can try to add it to the top menu code.

    In application/modules/Core/widgets/menu-mini/index.tpl‬ after

    viewer->getIdentity()) :?>

    add something like
  • viewer->getTitle(); ?>

    The php code was ruined...
    after the php line
    if( $this->viewer->getIdentity())
    add something like
    BEGIN_PHP echo $this->viewer->getTitle(); END_PHP
