The MyStatusArea control displays the note string, an availability icon/photo, a textblock with the user's name, and a textblock with the user's location.
Assembly: Microsoft.Lync.Controls (in Microsoft.Lync.Controls.dll)
The MyStatusArea control also displays the MyStatusArea and MyPresenceChooser controls together. To display these in separate locations, use MyNoteBox and MyPresenceChooser as separate controls. Clicking the presence status box displays a list of presence options, for example "Be Right Back". The user can change their presence by selecting one of these. The user can change their note string by typing in new text and pressing the Enter key. Separately, the MyPresenceChooser and MyNoteBox controls provide similar functionality, for applications where a customized layout is necessary.
