Introduction

This sample show how to connect one Windows Phone 8.0 app to Facebook, Google and Microsoft account.

Main Features: Login/Logout andhas an about page with feedback, share in social networks, review and share by email.

Building the Sample

You only need Visual Studio 2012/Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 8/Windows 8.1, both the RTM version.

This sample requires the installation for Live SDK (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/onedrive/dn630256). 

Description

This sample show to connect one Windows Phone 8.0 app to Facebook, Google and Microsoft account.

Main Features

  • Login/Logout (for logout i added some wourkarround to fixes the logout providers from sdks!)
  • About page with feedback, share in social networks, review and share by email (not important here, but is incluided in code)

Note: This sample uses MVVM Light and Cimbalino Windows Phone Toolkit.

For this sample was used:

For each provider is needed to get the app id/client id/client secrect in their websites:

For Google go to https://console.developers.google.com/project and create a new project (Apis & auth > credentials)

For Facebook go to https://developers.facebook.com/ and create a new app.

For Live SDK go to https://account.live.com/developers/applications/index and create one or use an existing app

Before you start you should change the Constant file to add client ids / client secret / app id, without it the app fails!!

This file is inside the Resource folder.

  /// <summary> 
    /// Defines the constants strings used in the app. 
    /// </summary> 
    public class Constants 
    { 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The facebook app id. 
        /// </summary> 
        public const string FacebookAppId = "<app id>"; 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The google client identifier. 
        /// </summary> 
        public const string GoogleClientId = "<client id>"; 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The google token file name. 
        /// </summary> 
        public const string GoogleTokenFileName = "Google.Apis.Auth.OAuth2.Responses.TokenResponse-user"; 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The google client secret. 
        /// </summary> 
        public const string GoogleClientSecret = "<client secret>"; 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The microsoft client identifier. 
        /// </summary> 
        public const string MicrosoftClientId = "<client id>"; 
 
      ... 
    }

Now let’s see how to connect to each provide. For help, i created a SessionService that manage the Login and Logout using a provider value, this is nice because in LoginView i set the buttons to the same command and for each command i set the provider in commandparameter. With it the LoginView and LoginViewModel are more clear and simple. Another thing is for example if i need to connect to my server to accept the user i can do it in session manager after the authentication, without to add the code to each provider.

The classes created:

  • FacebookService has all code related with authentication with Facebook account;
  • MicrosoftService has all code related with authentication with Microsoft account;
  • GoogleService has all code related with authentication with Google account;
  • SessionService call the methods login or logout for the provide requested;

The FacebookService is:

 /// <summary> 
    /// Defines the Facebook Service. 
    /// </summary> 
    public class FacebookService : IFacebookService 
    { 
        private readonly ILogManager _logManager; 
        private readonly FacebookSessionClient _facebookSessionClient; 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Initializes a new instance of the <see cref="FacebookService"/> class. 
        /// </summary> 
        /// <param name="logManager"> 
        /// The log manager. 
        /// </param> 
        public FacebookService(ILogManager logManager) 
        { 
            _logManager = logManager; 
            _facebookSessionClient = new FacebookSessionClient(Constants.FacebookAppId); 
        } 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The login sync. 
        /// </summary> 
        /// <returns> 
        /// The <see cref="Task"/> object. 
        /// </returns> 
        public async Task<Session> LoginAsync() 
        { 
            Exception exception; 
            Session sessionToReturn = null; 
            try 
            { 
                var session = await _facebookSessionClient.LoginAsync("user_about_me,read_stream"); 
                sessionToReturn = new Session 
                { 
                    AccessToken = session.AccessToken, 
                    Id = session.FacebookId, 
                    ExpireDate = session.Expires, 
                    Provider = Constants.FacebookProvider 
                }; 
 
                return sessionToReturn; 
            } 
            catch (InvalidOperationException) 
            { 
                throw; 
            } 
            catch (Exception ex) 
            { 
                exception = ex; 
            } 
            await _logManager.LogAsync(exception); 
            return sessionToReturn; 
        } 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Logouts this instance. 
        /// </summary> 
        public async void Logout() 
        { 
            Exception exception = null; 
            try 
            { 
                _facebookSessionClient.Logout(); 
 
                // clean all cookies from browser, is a workarround 
                await new WebBrowser().ClearCookiesAsync(); 
            } 
            catch (Exception ex) 
            { 
                exception = ex; 
            } 
            if (exception != null) 
            { 
                await _logManager.LogAsync(exception); 
            } 
        } 
    }

Note:  In logout i added a workarround to clear all cookies in browser, if i don´t this in the first time you can login with account you want but in the next time it will use the account used in last login.

The GoogleService is:

/// <summary> 
    /// The google service. 
    /// </summary> 
    public class GoogleService : IGoogleService

            try 
            { 
                // Oauth2Service.Scope.UserinfoEmail 
                _credential = await GoogleWebAuthorizationBroker.AuthorizeAsync(new ClientSecrets 
                { 
                    ClientId = Constants.GoogleClientId, 
                    ClientSecret = Constants.GoogleClientSecret 
                }, new[] { Oauth2Service.Scope.UserinfoProfile }, "user", CancellationToken.None); 
                 
                var session = new Session 
                { 
                    AccessToken = _credential.Token.AccessToken, 
                    Provider = Constants.GoogleProvider, 
                    ExpireDate = 
                        _credential.Token.ExpiresInSeconds != null 
                            ? new DateTime(_credential.Token.ExpiresInSeconds.Value) 
                            : DateTime.Now.AddYears(1), 
                    Id = string.Empty

                return session; 
            } 
            catch (TaskCanceledException taskCanceledException) 
            { 
                throw new InvalidOperationException("Login canceled.", taskCanceledException); 
            } 
            catch (Exception ex) 
            {

            } 
            await _logManager.LogAsync(exception); 
            return null; 
        } 
 
        /// <summary>

        /// </summary>

        /// The user info. 
        /// </returns> 
        public async Task<Userinfoplus> GetUserInfo() 
        { 
            _authService = new Oauth2Service(new BaseClientService.Initializer() 
            { 
                HttpClientInitializer = _credential, 
                ApplicationName = AppResources.ApplicationTitle, 
            }); 
            _userinfoplus = await _authService.Userinfo.V2.Me.Get().ExecuteAsync(); 
 
            return _userinfoplus; 
        } 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// The logout. 
        /// </summary> 
        public async void Logout() 
        { 
            await new WebBrowser().ClearCookiesAsync(); 
            if (_storageService.FileExists(Constants.GoogleTokenFileName)) 
            { 
                _storageService.DeleteFile(Constants.GoogleTokenFileName); 
            } 
        } 
    }

Note: In the logout for Google provide there isn´t a logout method, the solution is to remove all cookies and remove the file created in login operation.

Now is time to build the User Interface, and because i am using MVVM, i created a LoginViewModel to binding to the LoginView.

The LoginViewModel is:

 /// <summary> 
    /// The login view model. 
    /// </summary> 
    public class LoginViewModel : ViewModelBase 
    { 
        private readonly ILogManager _logManager; 
        private readonly IMessageBoxService _messageBox; 
        private readonly INavigationService _navigationService; 
        private readonly ISessionService _sessionService; 
        private bool _inProgress; 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Initializes a new instance of the <see cref="LoginViewModel"/> class. 
        /// </summary> 
        /// <param name="navigationService"> 
        /// The navigation service. 
        /// </param> 
        /// <param name="sessionService">

        /// </param> 
        /// <param name="messageBox">

        /// </param> 
        /// <param name="logManager"> 
        /// The log manager. 
        /// </param> 
        public LoginViewModel(INavigationService navigationService, 
            ISessionService sessionService, 
            IMessageBoxService messageBox, 
            ILogManager logManager) 
        { 
            _navigationService = navigationService; 
            _sessionService = sessionService; 
            _messageBox = messageBox; 
            _logManager = logManager; 
            LoginCommand = new RelayCommand<string>(LoginAction); 
        } 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Gets or sets a value indicating whether in progress. 
        /// </summary> 
        /// <value>

        /// </value> 
        public bool InProgress 
        { 
            get { return _inProgress; } 
            set { Set(() => InProgress, ref _inProgress, value); } 
        } 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Gets the facebook login command. 
        /// </summary> 
        /// <value> 
        /// The facebook login command. 
        /// </value> 
        public ICommand LoginCommand { get; private set; } 
 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Facebook's login action. 
        /// </summary> 
        /// <param name="provider"> 
        /// The provider. 
        /// </param> 
        private async void LoginAction(string provider) 
        { 
            Exception exception = null; 
            bool isToShowMessage = false; 
            try 
            { 
                InProgress = true; 
                var auth = await _sessionService.LoginAsync(provider); 
                if (!auth) 
                { 
                    await _messageBox.ShowAsync(AppResources.LoginView_LoginNotAllowed_Message, 
                        AppResources.MessageBox_Title, 
                        new List<string> 
                    { 
                        AppResources.Button_OK 
                    }); 
                } 
                else 
                { 
                    _navigationService.NavigateTo(new Uri(Constants.MainView, UriKind.Relative)); 
                } 
 
                InProgress = false; 
            } 
            catch (InvalidOperationException e) 
            { 
                InProgress = false; 
                isToShowMessage = true; 
            } 
            catch (Exception ex) 
            { 
                exception = ex; 
            } 
            if (isToShowMessage) 
            { 
                await _messageBox.ShowAsync(AppResources.LoginView_AuthFail, AppResources.ApplicationTitle, new List<string> { AppResources.Button_OK }); 
            } 
            if (exception != null) 
            { 
                await _logManager.LogAsync(exception); 
            } 
        } 
    }

Note: in LoginAction the parameter provider is the value of the CommandParameter received in LoginCommand, this is set in the login page.

The LoginPage.xaml is:
