JavaScript reference (Windows Store app and web)

The Live SDK JavaScript API (Windows Universal app and web) and the REST API, enables apps to read, update, and share user data by using JavaScript. It provides methods for signing users in and out, getting user status, subscribing to events, creating UI controls, and calling the Representational State Transfer (REST) API.

Last modified: March 10, 2015

The WL object is a global object that encapsulates all functions of the Live SDK JavaScript API (Windows Store app and web). Your app uses the WL object to call all of the Live SDK JavaScript API functions.

Note Note

All of the following functions apply to both Windows Universal apps and web apps unless otherwise noted.

This section contains the following topics.
