# This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
# See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

# This example assumes a previously obtained an access token
oauth2 = Chilkat::CkOAuth2.new()
oauth2.put_AccessToken("FACEBOOK-ACCESS-TOKEN")

rest = Chilkat::CkRest.new()

# Connect to Facebook...
success = rest.Connect("graph.facebook.com",443,true,true)
if (success != true)
    print rest.lastErrorText() + "\n";
    exit
end

# Provide the authentication credentials (i.e. the access key)
rest.SetAuthOAuth2(oauth2)

# Assumes we've already obtained a Photo ID.

sbPath = Chilkat::CkStringBuilder.new()
sbPath.Append("/v2.7/")

# First we're going to get the photo informaton so we can get the URL of the image file data.
# Select the fields we want.
# See https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/photo/
rest.AddQueryParam("fields","id,album,images")

responseJson = rest.fullRequestNoBody("GET",sbPath.getAsString())

end

json.Load(responseJson)

# Show the JSON in human-readable format.
print json.emit() + "\n";

# Get the image URL.

print "Downloading from " + imageUrl + "\n";

sbImageUrl = Chilkat::CkStringBuilder.new()

# Build the output local file path.
