Smart Tag on Web Page

Hi.

I'm building a web page (ASP.NET in VB) that is displaying employee list. For each employee I need to include their availability status (I think it's called smart tag) that can be found on Instant Messenger or in Outlook beside name. Now. Do I need to use smart tag for that or somehting else? Do I have to build it from scratch or I can reuse some objects in office? Not sure where to start. The 'smart tag' when clicked should show the menu with email, start IM, and user info. If more explanation is needed please let me know.

I use VS 2003, framework 1....

Thank you.

Alex.

If I understand correctly, what you want is to display the online "instant messenger" status of the employee, right?

If so, there are many components out there that do this.  Here's one I just found in Google:

Or just search in Google for something like "asp.net getting instant messenger status"
