Instagram Getting recent media from a tag
Instagram Platform API deprecation
As of April 4th, Instagram has suddenly decided to close down most of their Platform API. This unfortunately also means that many of the features in this package are no longer working. You can read more about the changes to the Instagram Platform API via the links below:

Getting recent media from a tag

Given that you already have an instance of the InstagramService class, you can get a list of the most recent media from a given tag like:

@using Skybrud.Social.Instagram.Objects.Media
@using Skybrud.Social.Instagram.Responses.Media
@inherits WebViewPage<Skybrud.Social.Instagram.InstagramService>

@{

    // Make the call to the API
    InstagramGetRecentMediaResponse response = Model.Tags.GetRecentMedia("skybruddk");
    
    // Iterate through the media
    <table class="table list">
        @{
            int nr = 1;
            foreach (InstagramMedia media in response.Body.Data) {
                <tr>
                    <td><strong>@(nr++).</strong></td>
                    <td><code>@media.Id</code></td>
                    <td class="nw">@media.CreatedTime.ToLocalTime()</td>
                    <td>
                        <img src="@media.Thumbnail" style="float: left;" />
                        <div style="margin-left: 160px;">
                            @media.CaptionText
                        </div>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            }
        }
    </table>

}

The example above will give you the 20 most recent media of that tag. The Instagram API documentation doesn't specify a maximum value, but it appears to be 33 (for whatever reason).

To request more (or less) media than the default 20 - or to request the next page, your code could instead look like this:

@using Skybrud.Social.Instagram.Objects.Media
@using Skybrud.Social.Instagram.Options.Tags
@using Skybrud.Social.Instagram.Responses.Media
@inherits WebViewPage<Skybrud.Social.Instagram.InstagramService>

@{

    // Temporary list for storing the retrieved media
    List<InstagramMedia> temp = new List<InstagramMedia>();

    // Declare the initial options
    InstagramGetTagRecentMediaOptions options = new InstagramGetTagRecentMediaOptions {
        Tag = "skybruddk",
        Count = 10
    };
    
    // Make the call to the API for the first page
    InstagramGetRecentMediaResponse response = Model.Tags.GetRecentMedia(options);

    // Add the media to the list
    temp.AddRange(response.Body.Data);

    // No reason to make another request if the first request didn't return any media
    if (temp.Count >= 0) {

        // Update the options
        options.MaxTagId = response.Body.Pagination.NextMaxId;

        // Make another call to the Instagram API
        response = Model.Tags.GetRecentMedia(options);

        // Add the media to the list
        temp.AddRange(response.Body.Data);

    }
    
    // Iterate through the media
    <table class="table list">
        @{
            int nr = 1;
            foreach (InstagramMedia media in temp) {
                <tr>
                    <td><strong>@(nr++).</strong></td>
                    <td><code>@media.Id</code></td>
                    <td class="nw">@media.CreatedTime.ToLocalTime()</td>
                    <td>
                        <img src="@media.Thumbnail" style="float: left;" />
                        <div style="margin-left: 160px;">
                            @media.CaptionText
                        </div>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            }
        }
    </table>

}

In the first example, we simply specified the name of the tag as the first parameter for the GetRecentMedia method. The method does however support a few different overloads - eg. one that lets you specify an instance of InstagramGetTagRecentMediaOptions.

This class has a number of properties that gives you better control of the parameters that are sent to the Instagram API. Like the GetRecentMedia method, this class also supports a number of different constructor overloads.
