Two ways to Login or Authenticate using Facebook JS SDK Dialog box

Two easy way to have your app users get authenticate with Facebook JS SDK,
you may use FB.UI or FB.LOGIN, as example below,

Using FB.UI,

<pre lang="javascript">FB.ui(
method: 'oauth',
function(response) {
if(response.session) {
if(redirectURL) location.href = redirectURL;



<pre lang="javascript">FB.login(function(response) {
if (response.session) {
if (response.perms) {
//Logged and Permission Granted
if(redirectURL) location.href = redirectURL;
} else {
//Logged and Permisssion NOT Granted
if(redirectURL) location.href = redirectURL;
} else {
alert("Only Authorized User can use this Application!");
//Not Logged
}, {

For your notes, that FB.UI can set the dialog as an iframe or a popup window, if set in iframe you need to set the cookie by your self to make a facebook session. FB.dialog can only set as a popup window, and cookie will be created automatically as your user granted the application.
