After clicking the confirm button to send invite using SendRequest(...), the browser is redirected to my www.hostingpage.com instead of canvas page. i am loosing the facebook template even if i click on "forget it" button on confirmation page.

I'm having the exact same problem after clicking on the confirm button. And I am using the IFrame base page. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you wouldn't mind could you please send me some sample codefor SendRequest? i have this call in PageLoad event(just to test this functionality). I do not get any URL back. The URL returned by this function is null. I need to release this by Friday and still can't figure out the "Sending an invitation to add the app" feature working.

Any help from anyone is appreciated!

here you go.

url = this.fbService.SendRequest(fbml, _toList, "application", _img, true);
if (_url.Length > 0)
Response.Write("<script type=\"text/javascript\">\nif (parent != self) \ntop.location.href = \"" + _url + "&next=" + Server.UrlEncode("?next=default.aspx") + "\";\nelse self.location.href = \"" + _url + "&next=" + Server.UrlEncode("?next=default.aspx") + "\";\n</script>");

fblm is ur link to add application
_toList is list of friends
_img i have image, but is not working

once i get the url i redirect the user to confirm page with param next in the url.
once user click confirm or forget button the page will redirct you to ur hosting page and ur going to loose the facebook template.
on ur hosting page look for the next param and redirect the user to http://apps.facebook.com/urapp to get the facebook template.

let me know if have any questions.

when i had my app on my local box tell a friend link worked. once i hosted live i start loosing the session.
every time i click on tell a friend link facebook redirect me to the default page, becz i don't have session it goes to login page. since i am loged in, it redirect me to cavase page wich is defualt.aspx
i have hidden variable, but didn't work. let me know if you have solution.

The SendRequest worked and also receiving invitation and adding app is fine. However the iFrame is lost.

The Post-Add URL is :


The iFrame is fine if I give the PostAddURL as :

Does anyone know how to retain the iFrame for the above URL(thats localhost)?

I meant right after the user adds the app, the iFrame is lost....

Sorry I did not see your message above earlier.

It sounds however from your last post that you now have that question answered. Is that correct?
