Requirements

The following dependencies are bundled with the Yahoo! PHP SDK, but are under terms of a separate license. See the bundled LICENSE files for more information:

Installation

After downloading and unpacking the release, import the directory into a new Flash Builder project.

Examples

The sdk comes with an example application, but you must first set the OAuth consumer key and secret in the main application MXML file.

private static const CONSUMER_KEY:String = "YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY";
private static const CONSUMER_SECRET:String = "YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET";

Create OAuth applications in the Yahoo! Developer Dashboard:

http://developer.yahoo.com/dashboard/

Using the component:

Using the component is as simple as adding the component MXML to your application.

<friendpicker:FriendPicker id="friendPicker" width="350" height="500"/>

On initialization of the application, you must supply the component with OAuth credentials in order to request social information from YQL. The sample application uses Flashvars to provide this data, as shown below.

var flashvars:Object = Application.application.parameters;

var consumer:OAuthConsumer = new OAuthConsumer();
consumer.key = CONSUMER_KEY;
consumer.secret = CONSUMER_SECRET;

var token:YahooAccessToken = new YahooAccessToken();
token.key = flashvars.yap_viewer_access_token;
token.secret = flashvars.yap_viewer_access_token_secret;
token.yahoo_guid = flashvars.yap_viewer_guid;

friendPicker.setup({
    application: new YahooApplication(consumer.key, consumer.secret, flashvars.yap_appid, token),
    type: flashvars.type,
    subject: flashvars.subject,
    body: flashvars.body,
    cancelURL: flashvars.cancelURL
});

Displaying on YAP

The following markup used to display Flash content in YAP applications. An absolute URL to the Flash SWF is required, along with a query-string defining the flashvars.

<yml:swf 
   src="http://your-application.com/swf/YAPFriendPicker.swf" 
   width="350" 
   height="500"
   flashvars="type=message&subject=message+subject&body=message+body&yap_viewer_access_token=...&yap_viewer_access_token_secret=...&yap_viewer_guid=..." 
/>

PHP Example

$config = array(
   'type' => 'message',
   'subject' => '%MessageSubject%',
   'body' => '%MessageBody%',
   'yap_viewer_access_token' => $_POST['yap_viewer_access_token'],
   'yap_viewer_access_token_secret' => $_POST['yap_viewer_access_token_secret'],
   'yap_viewer_guid' => $_POST['yap_viewer_guid'],
   'yap_appid' => $_POST['yap_appid']
);

$flashvars = http_build_query($config);

echo "<yml:swf flashvars='$flashvars' src='http://your-application.com/swf/YAPFriendPicker.swf' width='350' height='500'/>";
