Return Value

A string that represents the type of activity.

When using an activity class that derives from the Activity class, such as AddStatusActivity or AddBookmarkActivity, the activityType property of the activity is automatically determined, and any set values are ignored.

When reading activities in an activity collection, you can get the activityType property to determine what activity you are working with.

The following example demonstrates how to get and set the activityType property.

    var activityType = activity.get_activityType();
