Slideshow for Facebook

Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 2:22 PM

The new Slideshow for Facebook gadget has just been announced on the Inside Google Desktop blog. If you look at the gadget's source code, you'll be introduced to two new objects that we think you might like.

For displaying photos, there's an automated slideshow object that, given a list of image URLs, displays the images at the requested interval.

The second object implements a Desktop-enhanced Facebook JavaScript API. This API gives you easy access to the friend lists, albums, and photos of Facebook members.

The code for using these objects is simple, as the gadget source code demonstrates. If you have trouble using either object, you can get help at the usual place: the Google Desktop Developer Group.
