Facebook FQL query nothing displaying

Hi all,

I am trying to get something (Anything!) out of a FQL (Facebook Query Language), so it's just trying out samples and I get no display at all.

Trying this for example:

$query = "SELECT name FROM user WHERE uid = 111111111";
$result = $fb->fql($query);

var_dump($result);

Shouldn't the above at least display some output?

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Update:

This is returning something now ... well...it's displaying something which is NULL

$result_set = $facebook->api_client->fql_query("select name from user where uid=$userId");

It should really be displaying a name though :o/

Apparetly there is nothing bad in the query... maybe there is an error on your displaying?

Can you post here the complete code you're using at the page?
