Initializes the Loader.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Live.Core



Type: Microsoft.Live.Core..::.LoaderSettings
The settings to update.

To initialize settings of the Loader, invoke this method immediately after referencing the loader.js file. Currently, a market can be provided to load language-specific resources.

The initialize(LoaderSettings) method must be invoked prior to invoking the load(String, Callback) method of the loader.

This example shows how Japanese resources can be loaded.

            <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
            <script type="text/javascript">
                function onLoaded() {
                    alert("Features loaded.");
                Microsoft.Live.Core.Loader.initialize({market: "ja-JP"});
                Microsoft.Live.Core.Loader.load("Messenger.UI", onLoaded);

ExceptionThe load(String, Callback) method has already been invoked.
