Running with Code Like with scissors, only more dangerous


Facebook UI for ASP.NET Launches

I’ve officially launched the Facebook UI for ASP.NET project at CodePlex at  It’s kind of a preview edition of what’s to come – and there’s quite a bit.  Here’s a quick overview:


  • Design-time and run-time server support for about 30 FBML controls.
  • Visual Studio IntelliSense support for FBML controls
  • Web Site project templates in Visual Studio 2008

Version 1:

  • All FBML tags within: Users/Groups, Profile-Specific, Embedded Media, Visibility on Profile, Tools, Forms, Message Attachments, Additional Permissions, Notifications and Requests, Status Messages, Page Navigation, Dialog, and Wall sections.
  • Complete API support.
  • Extensibility points within the FBML controls framework and API framework to enable updates from Facebook to be rolled in without requiring an immediate release of a new library.

Version 1.5:

  • LINQ-to-FQL (or as some folks at the user group mentioned, perhaps it’ll be called LINQ-to-Facebook).
  • Higher-level controls will be included, such as validators and simple logic controls, like a birthday display.

Version 2:

  • Facebook internationalization should be supported.
  • Mobile platform support should be extended.

Beyond that, I’m not sure where we’re going to take the project.  We’ll have to see!
