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.PhotoActivityObject = function();


The PhotoActivityObject class is used with the AddPhotoActivity class to read or create photo activities that represent photos in an activity stream.

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. The PhotoActivityObject object is used in the initialization of the AddPhotoActivity object.

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');
