Adds a photo to an activity stream.

Feature:  Microsoft.Live.Services
Namespace:  Microsoft.Live.Services

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. To learn more about creating, instantiating, and deriving from classes, see Creating Custom Client Script by Using the Microsoft Ajax Library.

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


The AddPhotoActivity class is used to read or create photo activities that represent photos that a user shares in an activity stream. The arguments of the constructor method of the AddPhotoActivity class encapsulate all of the information needed to specify the photo activity.

An AddPhotoActivity instance is composed of one or more objects of class PhotoActivityObject that describe the individual photos to share. The photo activity objects are accessed with the activityObjects property. An AddPhotoActivity object also requires an activity target that is represented by an object of class PhotoAlbumActivityObject. The target represents the photo album object for which the activity of adding photos takes place.

For more information about the specification for this object type, see "Photo" in Atom A.

For more information about activities, see Activities Resource and Working with Activities (JavaScript).

The following example demonstrates how to add a photo activity to an existing activity collection.

function addPhotoActivity() {
    if (myActivitiesCollection) {
        var photoActivityObject1 = new Microsoft.Live.Services.PhotoActivityObject('', '', 'photo1.jpg');
        var photoActivityObject2 = new Microsoft.Live.Services.PhotoActivityObject('', '', 'photo2.jpg');
        var photoActivityTarget = new Microsoft.Live.Services.PhotoAlbumActivityObject(new Date(), '');
        var photoActivity = new Microsoft.Live.Services.AddPhotoActivity([photoActivityObject1], photoActivityTarget, '');
        if (myActivitiesCollection.isValidType(photoActivity)) {
        else {
            alert('invalid photo activity');
