The JavaScript Library for Windows Live Messenger Connect is built by using the Microsoft Ajax Library. Microsoft Ajax exposes a type system that enables you to add object-oriented capabilities to your JavaScript code.

Microsoft.Live.Services.Profile = function();


A Windows Live profile is a summary of information about a user that can be shared with other people, such as interests, activities, and contact information. Profile attributes are read-only and cannot be changed programmatically.

In the following example, the first function shows how to load profiles from the Microsoft.Live.Services.DataContext instance. The second function gets the Microsoft.Live.Services.ProfileCollection from Microsoft.Live.DataLoadCompletedEventArgs.

function loadAllProfiles() {
    dataContext.loadAll(Microsoft.Live.DataType.profiles, profilesLoaded);

function profilesLoaded(dataLoadCompletedEventArgs) {
    profileCollection = dataLoadCompletedEventArgs.get_data();
    Sys.Debug.trace("Profiles are loaded.");
