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.SearchableArrayList = function();


The SearchableArrayList is the base class that defines the functionality for searchable lists from which the DataCollection class inherits.

The following example shows how to work with a DataCollection that derives from SearchableArrayList. In this example, a ContactCollection demonstrates that there are other resource collection types that derive from SearchableArrayList.

            dataContext.loadAll(Microsoft.Live.DataType.contacts, function (contactsLoadedEvent) {
                if (contactsLoadedEvent.get_resultCode() !== Microsoft.Live.AsyncResultCode.success) return;
                var contactsCollection = contactsLoadedEvent.get_data();
                var itemArray = contactsCollection.items;
                var length = itemArray.length; // same as contactsCollection.get_length()
                alert("Items found = " + length);
