Desktop Application Start with 2.0

Oct 7, 2008 at 1:04 PM
Does anyone have any hints on using the 2.0 version with a desktop application, in particular, simply authenticating? This was simple with 1.7, but doesn't seem intuitive at all with 2.0.

Thanks for any pointers!

Okay, found an example of how to use the 2.0 RC2 in the source code folder. However, still needs some work as I'm getting SSL/TLS connection errors. The exception is thrown when the call to FacebookService.ConnectToFacebook() is used. Here's the code I'm using:


Class Main



Private Sub ConnectToFacebook()


FacebookService.ApplicationKey =

"<<MY KEY>>"


FacebookService.Secret =





End Sub




Private Sub FriendList1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles FriendList1.Load







Dim Friends As List(Of Long) = FacebookService.friends.get



Dim Profiles As List(Of facebook.Schema.user) = FacebookService.users.getInfo(Friends)


FriendList1.Friends = Profiles


Catch ex As Exception


MessageBox.Show(ex.StackTrace, ex.Message)


End Try



End Sub
