Problem with "Streamlining account registration" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a big problem with the development of the Streamlining account registration. My problem is that I can't prevent the signIn function auto start.

    My Code is:

        WL.init({ client_id: '00000000XXXXXXXX', redirect_uri: "http://mydomain.com/test.php" });
        { "scope": "wl.basic wl.birthday wl.emails" },
        function (response) {
            if (response.status == "connected") {
            else {
                log("Could not connect, status = " + response.status);
    function registerUser() {
        WL.api("/me", "GET",
            function (response) {
                if (!response.error) {
                else {
                    log("API call failed: " + JSON.stringify(response.error).replace(/,/g, "\n"));
    function fillRegistrationForm(user) {
        // NOTE: Assign these values to your form elements to streamline registration.
        log("First name: " + user.first_name);
        log("Last name: " + user.last_name);
        log("Preferred email: " + user.emails.preferred);
        log("Gender: " + user.gender);
        log("Birthday: " + user.birth_month + "/" + user.birth_day + "/" + user.birth_year);
    function log(message) {

    If i create a function with inside the WL.login(...) and i bind this function on the link click, the signIn popup appears but when it close i don't receive the user data if not only on the next reload page.

    My goal is to allow user to register into my website doing a MSN signIn.


    Can anybody help me?

  • I'm not sure what flow you're trying to achieve -- the user has to sign in and grant their consent in order to connect to your application using Messenger Connect, so why are you trying to close the signIn popup?

  • sorry for my english....

    If i create a function with inside the WL.login(...) and i bind this function on the link click, the signIn popup appears, the user grant their consent and the popup close itselft. On the firebug I receive this message: [WL]WL.login: The popup is closed without receiving consent. but I had click to consent!!!

    I'm explain better?

    Certainly i wrong something but i don't understand where...

    PS: I have problem also with example downloaded from Download section

  • Have you tried to do the user registartion onLoginComplete like this:-

          WL.Event.subscribe("auth.login", onLoginComplete);
          WL.Event.subscribe("wl.log", onAPIError);

          function onLoginComplete() {
             var session = WL.getSession();
             if (session.error) {
             else {

  • Hi EWhere,

      What does your callback page do (http://mydomain.com/test.php)? We expect your callback page be a page that simply load the wl.js 

    e.g.  <script src="//js.live.net/v5.0/wl.js" type="text/javascript" ></script>

  • can you please point out where this is documented? the oauth docs are a complete nightmare of aspx madness. I had to google for the error and fortunately found this page.

  • very Simple, WL.getLoginStatus is for this situation.

    WL.getLoginStatus( function(response) { if(response.session == null) { singUserIn(); } });

    function singUserIn() { WL.login({ scope: scope }); }
