flickr OAuth check token?

Jan 19, 2012 at 8:50 PM

I've changed my application to use OAuth, and things seem to be working fine.  However, I know my OAuth access token will eventually expire.  I was looking for a straightforward way to check to ensure my access token is still valid (like AuthCheckToken, but for OAuth). 

The Flickr API seems to have a flickr.auth.oauth.checkToken method (, but I could not find a corresponding function in (maybe I'm just missing it).

When I call the flickr API method directly with an invalid token, I get what I'd expect:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<rsp stat="fail">
  <err code="98" msg="Invalid token" />

Yes, I added that to the library yesterday actually.

I need to do another build and then release that.
