First off -- great work on the toolkit, it is very impressive.
I am in the process of writing an application, and have the newsfeed item link in the form of:
When I first log in and click the 'View Answers' link in my newsfeed, it redirects to the postback url for the application. Now, after my main application page has loaded, the news feed item works great. This leads me to believe that for some reason the session
is not being fully set on my ViewAnswers page (which uses a Master Page) The master page is set up like this:
Protected Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init
Public Sub loadFacebook()
_fbService.ApplicationKey = "949949949949949"
_fbService.Secret = "94994994994994994994"
_fbService.IsDesktopApplication = False
Dim sessionKey As String = TryCast(Session("facebooksessionkey"), String)
Dim userId As String = TryCast(Session("facebook_userId"), String)
Dim authToken As String = Request.QueryString("auth_token")
If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
If (Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(sessionKey)) Then
_fbService.SessionKey = sessionKey
_fbService.UserId = userId
ElseIf (Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(authToken)) Then
Session("facebooksessionkey") = _fbService.SessionKey
Session("facebook_userId") = _fbService.UserId
Session("facebook_userName") = _fbService.GetUserInfo.Name
Session("facebooksessionexpires") = _fbService.SessionExpires
' Need to login
Response.Redirect("http://www.facebook.com/login.php?api_key=" & _fbService.ApplicationKey & "&v=1.0")
Protected Overrides Sub OnPreRender(ByVal e As EventArgs)
'Dirty hack for IE?
Response.AppendHeader("P3P", "CP=\""CAO PSA OUR\""")
Am I missing something completely obvious? Any thoughts?
Disregard my above message, I grabbed your full source, and ended up using your Masterpage implementation. Much easier than doing all of the crazy session stuff in each page load.
The code in the Masterpage example needed to have Overloads added.
Protected Overloads Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init
MyBase.Api = FACEBOOKAPIKEY
MyBase.Secret = FACEBOOK_SECRET
I zipped up the project with the VB.NET solution fully working -- should I send it to you, or what is the process for that?
Thanks again for your amazing trailblazing on this.

Are the Overloads the only thing you changed in the solution? If so, the easiest thing for me is probably just to type in the changes quick myself. If you have some other changes, though, try uploading your solution on the Upload Patch page (http://www.codeplex.com/FacebookToolkit/SourceControl/UploadPatch.aspx).
I haven't really used that feature of Codeplex yet, but I'd like to start trying it out if you have some other changes. If you do decide to go that way, leave some comments there as well to let me know what else was changed. Thanks.
