Chintandave er - Thanks and edit screeshot

Hi Kunal, Thanks for screenshot.

Can you please rotate the picture to make visible in landscape mode ? so for that you need to overwrite above images after rotating on your PC.

So It visible properly.

Hamishwillee - Thanks for your fixes!

Hi Kunal

Thanks for including a source file upload. Would it be possible to attach a .SIS file which does have your app id?

Anyway, I tried this on Symbian without requesting an app ID. It doesn't work quite as I expected. Firstly, after the image is taken I'm not taken to a preview. The share buttons are displayed but the view I'm seeing is still the camera preview (ie live feed from the camera). The images are actually better on Symbian because the buttons are displayed in a black area/toolbar, so you can see them properly (which I couldn't easily on your images above)

I've subedited this and improved the wording. The bit where you connect the helper into the QML is probably worth documenting. I'd also suggest that you move your link to the blog down to the bottom of the section and let the documentation on FBHelper "stand on its own". Questions like "what capabilities does this bit of the code need" would be helpful.

I removed the bit where you said capabilities are needed for saving the file (they aren't). It is possible you don't need any of ReadUserData \ WriteUserData \ LocalServices \

Vikachew - Facebook July 2012 Changes

Hi, this article helps a lot on my assignment in mobile programming. Though I have to modified it a little to meet my requirement for my app. Thanks a lot!!

But anyway, I noticed the url in FacebookHelper::login function where the QUrl url is directed to "" instead of "". I personally prefer the mobile url because the web layout is way simpler and better in mobile devices. But when I tried it on the first time I got an error when I clicked Login button. Yes, it's because of the new Policy (or something) in Facebook Application that disabled login from mobile url (or for some other thing I haven't quite understand).

So to make it work, I have to either change my Facebook App's setting to disable the policy temporarily, or change the QUrl url to "" (but the effect is the login page isn't really nice, the text is too small, etc). I chose the first option though, by keeping the mobile url, but I realize that it won't work forever. I was wondering if this issue can be fixed somehow? (or I just have to be satisfied with standard web version of Facebook Login Page). Thanks in advance!

Hamishwillee - @Vikachew - good question

I think the idea of using the mobile dialog is very good, assuming it is possible. Some implementations I've seen have been fairly ugly with the desktop page.

Kunal the one - Facebook July 2012 Changes


Right now I am not aware of what changes are done by facebook, I will have a look and try for possibility of using custom login dialog to provide good user experience. As of now I think we can also use Account/SSO API for Meego, but for symbian we still need some good solution.
