Simplified Facebook Login Screen/Button

You must Login before you can answer or comment on any questions.

Hi, I'm currently developing an app that needs to be connected to Facebook all the time. So, first thing i do is set my appid, my permissions, and then i call Ti.Facebook.authorize.

Notice that i don't need a login/logout button - i just need to check if the user's is logged in, and if it's not - i call the "facebook login screen". Of course i have a "Logoff" button on my app, in case the user wants to change his logged account. But for that case i have an EventListener that call Ti.Facebook.authorize again.. so if the user has logged out, the app would redirect him again to the Facebook Default Login Screen.

What i want to know is.. is there an "alternative" simpler facebook login screen? The default one i get is the facebook's default - with the textfields for login and password, the button "Log In", but besides that i get "Forgot password?" , "Trouble logging in? Try the alternative login", "Need a facebook account? Sign up here", "Help Center", etc.

Isn't there a way to show only the two textfields and the LogIn button?

I didn't want to create an interface just to do this. I have a TabBar (with 4 tabs) and the whole idea is that i won't need a tab just for Login/Logout.. instead i'd check and just authorize/prompt the user to login if it's necessary - and it works. But i'd love if there was a "simpler" facebook screen with just the necessary info. . Currently i'm just doing this:

function CheckFacebook() {
    //facebook access
    Ti.Facebook.appid = 'xxxxx';
    Ti.Facebook.permissions = ['publish_stream','publish_checkins'];    

Thanks in advance

  • Hi Hans. Thanks for the input. I've looked at the Kitchen Sink example but the "login screen" is exactly the same that i have here. I'm talking about that "official screen" that shows up after you press Connect With Facebook. Maybe this is default and i really can't simplify it more (like i said, i'd like to leave only the textfields and login button, without the extra "Trouble logging in", "Forgot your password", etc, that appears on the screen - that mimics the Facebook website.
