  • You get your contacts in the OnRosterItem event
  • You consider all contacts as offline by default
  • You get the presence of online contacts in the OnPresence event.

Thank you but, I don't want to suscribe to the presence event. I dont want to consume every time someone changes his status.

I need to see in any point of time if someone is available and his status (away, busy, etc).

Another library I was using has a method: PresenceManager.IsAvailable(JID) . As matrix has support for messenger and facebook, I'd like to switch.

How can I simulate somehting like that with matrix?

This is how XMPP works. What the other library does is just adding all presences to a dictionary where you can look them up.
So add a dictionary to your code and fill or update it from the OnPresence event.

Which member on the PresenceEventArgs has the status information needed to determine online/offline/busy/etc? The only relevant sounding properties are all marked as OPTIONAL in their descriptions.

I want to do something like:

MyContact.OnlineStatus = e.Presence.OnlineStatus;
