I'm new to facebook development.
I have tried to write very simple application and put it into my profile.
http://pokazywarka.pl/3h45s0/ <- link with image of facebook application
I would like to do exactly the same thing as on image ( app is marked with red rectangle ;-) )
I would be grateful for your help.
I have spend many hours searching over facebook documentation and internet.
Thanks in advance

You need to do two things:
1. Goto your Facebook Developer -> Edit Application -> Profiles -> Fill out the Tab Name and TAB URL (this URL is the url of what gets rendered in the box)
2. Add the "Add to Profile" button
<cc1:AddSectionButton ID="AddSectionButton1" runat="server" Section="Profile">
you also need to call Api.Profile.SetFBML(user.uid, "Your Text Here", null, null); // if you don't do this, you won't see the button

I have done the above, and am getting the following error during the call to SetFBML:
Error Message:System.Web.HttpUnhandledException: Exception of type 'System.Web.HttpUnhandledException' was thrown.

Api.Profile.SetFBML(CType(Api.Users.GetInfo().uid, Long), sProfileBoxes, sProfileMain, Nothing)
P.S. Yes, I know the profile boxes are going away, my boss wants me to do it anyway. :)
