    I’m implementing the facebook-plugin right now and therefore i have a question. In our case we want to have one button in our main menu, where the user can share on his wall that he’s playing crazyElephant.

    I know that the following code is missing some if/else-statements, but I think it should work, when i press the button for the first time. So i want that the user connects to FB and without another button-click can share the post.

    But with this code, unfortunately the user can just connect to FB and then returns to the app, without being able to post.

    function postToUsersWall() {
            //if not connected
            //if connected, just the following code
            facebook.openWallDialog( {
                                        "link" : "",
                                        "description" : "Download this awesome game for android!",
                                        "name" : "Crazy Elephant",
                                        "caption" : "by X.X MassDeveloper",
                                    } );


    Is there a possibility, to combine this logic with a single button, so that the user can always share with one click, even if he wasn’t connected? Or is it only possible to connect before (e.g. with a dialogue that opens on the 5th app-start) and then get rid of the facebook.openSession() in this function?

    could you please tell us on which platform you’re testing (Android or iOS)? Furthermore, is the native Facebook App installed or how does the connect happen (in-app, app switching, webview)?





    I’m testing it on Android and the facebook app is not installed.

    When i click the connect-button, a facebook-login page opens up in a webview.

    I just revised your code snippet, this one can’t actually work like you expect it to do. The call facebook.openSession(); is an asynchronous one, meaning that you would have to implement onSessionStateChanged: and send your request as soon as the session is opened.

    By the way, we will publish a revised version of our Facebook plugin tomorrow which should fix some other bugs on Android. 🙂
