fb:editor sample

Is there any working example of <fb:editor> usage out there? Please.
I'm starting to believe, that the usage of fe:editor is impossible with asp.net.

So, it looks like Facebook Developer Toolkit is utterly useless, when it comes to FBML powered apps.
Let's switch to Nikhil's Facebook.NET.

you may find that the <fb:editor> tag renders its own html <form> tags, which means if you have it embedded in a <form> tag when you write it, it'll break.
this problem is not FDTK specific,

You can read the fields as query string parameters.
This form is taken straight from the developer's wiki.

<fb:editor action="ThisPage.aspx" labelwidth="100">
     <fb:editor-text label="Title" name="title" value=""/>
     <fb:editor-text label="Author" name="author" value=""/>
     <fb:editor-custom label="Status">
          <select name="state">
               <option value="0" selected>have read</option>
               <option value="1">am reading</option>
               <option value="2">want to read</option>
     <fb:editor-textarea label="Comment" name="comment"/>
          <fb:editor-button value="Add"/>
          <fb:editor-button value="Recommend"/>
          <fb:editor-cancel />

and in the code behind I just read the query string:

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (GetQueryString("title") == "mytitle")
                Response.Write("I see your title!");

        private string GetQueryString(string param)
            return Request.QueryString[param];

or even better:


(string key in Request.QueryString.AllKeys)


Response.Write(key +

" = " + Request.QueryString[key] + "<br>");
