As a developer, sometimes we need to share our work to social media or if we want to develop an application that need Soc Med services, we have to create authentication to that services by our self. First of all, before we use Twitter/Facebook/Live ID or Google, make sure that we have application key.

The table below authentication providers and URL to register an application

Provider Name URL
Live ID

I will show how to use the Infragistics Access Control.

First, create new Project, choose Windows Phone App, enter the name of project File:New Project.jpg Find "XamAccessControl" in the toolbox and drag to MainPage.xaml File:AccessControl.jpg

Setting the control like my code to use Twitter Authentication <ig:XamAccessControl x:Name="accessCtrl" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="100" Margin="37,227,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="100" >

                       ClientSecret="xxxxx"                        />

Please note, the "Provider" property can be change to

  1. Twitter
  2. Facebook
  3. Live Id
  4. Google

and drag a button to activate authentication process and put below code:

accessCtrl.IsOpen = true;
