hi all,

i am trying to create FBML base application.

my code has no error when i compile.
when i run the application in debug mode, nothing happen after base.PageLoad(sender, e); and i get blank page. when i look at sorce of the blank page i got <fb:redirect url=""/>.
is there something i have to do on page load.
the application is not even going to if (!IsPostBack).
i have copy code from AspNetPlatformSample\FBML still not working. i don't know what i am missing here.

below is the code for my default.aspx page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_default" %>

<form id="form1">
<asp:Label ID="lblDashboard" runat="server"></asp:Label>
<asp:Label ID="lblHelloWorld" runat="server"></asp:Label><br />
<a href="">Default 2 Link</a>
<input type="submit" value="default 2 submit" />

new protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
base.Secret = FACEBOOK_SECRET;
base.Page_Load(sender, e);

if (!IsPostBack)
// Use the FacebookService Component to populate Friends
Facebook.Entity.User u = this.FBService.GetUserInfo();
Collection<Facebook.Entity.User> f = this.FBService.GetFriends();

string s = "";
if (f.Count != 1)
s = "s";
lblHelloWorld.Text = "Hello " + u.Name + " you have " + f.Count + " friend" + s + "..." + this.FBService.SessionKey;

Hi all,

I am facing the same problem as mentioned above.

I am using Iframe to load the pages.

I think the session value is getting expired when redirecting the pages from default.aspx to default2.aspx.

How to store the session key and userid values for fbservice instance.

please help me.

Thanks in advance,
