Contact.Cid Property

Gets the CID of the contact.

Feature:  Messenger.Core
Namespace:  Microsoft.Live.Messenger

// To retrieve:
var cid = instance.get_cid();

This property returns a string representation of the contact's CID in signed decimal format. If the contact is not associated with a Windows Live account, this property returns String.Empty. For example, if the contact only has an OfficeCommunicator instant messaging address, it will not have an associated CID.

A CID is a numeric identifier that uniquely identifies users within Windows Live. The user's CID can be obtained from the Cid property of the Identity property on User.
