The Microsoft Presence Sample for Web Based Applications illustrates how to display presence status and provide real-time collaboration options in web pages using the interfaces provided by Microsoft Office Communicator 2005.

  • The Microsoft Presence Sample for Web Based Applications demonstrates three different approaches for displaying presence status and providing real-time collaboration options on web pages:

    • Using the NameCtrl Activex control that is installed by Office 2003 and used by Windows SharePoint Services and SharePoint Portal Server 2003 to display presence and provide real-time collaboration options
    • Using a custom ActiveX control, the Presence Controls, to provide a custom user experience
    • Using simple scripting from the web page to access the Office Communicator 2005 automation interfaces to provide a basic level of functionality

    • You should install either Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express to build the controls and the sample applications
    • Microsoft Office Communicator 2005 should be installed on any client machines accessing deployed instances of these web application samples
    • There is no support for this sample code.
