    Question Single URL along with Get paramater for social buttons

    Greetings,

    hope every one is fine on this community..

    I am facing a problem, that's why i am here for some help.

    i need to implement Facebook, tweet and G+ button my on my app (windows software)

    but i can't figure out a way.. because web version have many settings like Java script, DIV etc etc. But i need a single url format so, that i can call from my app.

    example: i have place a fb like image on my app and when user click on it. it will use following windows API call to open that link/like in user default browser

    Code:
    ShellExecute hWnd, "open", "http://www.facebook.com/like?herf=myURL", vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    hope that make sense

    i need for all above 3 button (fb like/tweet/G+)

    any help would be highly appreciated..

    thanks in advanced

    best regards

    It seems as if I am invisible, or my posts are... The links I gave shows the code that you should implement ( whether from the web, or your desktop app - although a bit more difficult )

    Re: Single URL along with Get paramater for social buttons

    OK, well, I see your fear, but you are makin use of the ShellExecute API, so all you need to supply is the link ( that gets generated by FB, Twitter, or G+ ) on those pages I have linked you to in post #2.

    This seems to work fine for me :

    Code:
    Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
    
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'facebook link
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", _
    "http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vbforums.com&width=450&height=80&colorscheme=light&layout=standard&action=like&show_faces=true&send=true", _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command2_Click()
    'twitter
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", _
    "https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?original_referer=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fabout%2Fresources%2Fbuttons&text=Twitter%20%2F%20Twitter%20buttons&tw_p=tweetbutton&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vbforums.com", _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command3_Click()
    'google
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command4_Click()
    'facebook share
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", _
    "https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.vbforums.com", _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    End Sub
    You should obviously just change the url from VBForums to your URL.

    I hope this helps!

    I think i found the solution for G+, it's not that hard, but if you can confirm where that also work on your end too


    Code:
    Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
    
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'facebook link
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", _
    "http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vbforums.com&width=450&height=80&colorscheme=light&layout=standard&action=like&show_faces=true&send=true", _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command2_Click()
    'twitter
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", _
    "https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?original_referer=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fabout%2Fresources%2Fbuttons&text=Twitter%20%2F%20Twitter%20buttons&tw_p=tweetbutton&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vbforums.com", _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command3_Click()
    'google ' updated here is my code.. please check..
    ShellExecute hWnd, "open", "https://plus.google.com/share?url={URL Goes Here}", vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Command4_Click()
    'facebook share
    ShellExecute hwnd, "open", _
    "https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.vbforums.com", _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, 1
    End Sub
    however, once again thanks a lot for your kind help
