Display Local User Information with Lync 2010 Controls

This topic introduces the MyStatusArea control and the MyPresenceChooser and MyNoteBox subcontrols.

Use the MyStatusArea control and the MyPresenceChooser and MyNoteBox subcontrols to let users view and change their presence status and user note.

The choice of using the MyStatusArea control or the subcontrols partly depends on whether you prefer to display the subcontrols together. The MyStatusArea control provides an easy way to display them together. To display them separately, use the subcontrols. Additionally, the MyStatusArea control includes the photo, name, and location of the currently signed-in user.

The MyStatusArea control displays the MyPresenceChooser and MyNoteBox subcontrols together as a single unit.
