Hello, I am writing a plugin with Skype functionality. I need to display the contacts as a list of controls that are identical to Skype.That is, Each contact must have a name, status, avatar, etc. I already have a wrapper for Skype functionality. Can you please tell me how to do it better? Is it possible to create a custom control like in xaml or modify menu, listControl, etc. to my queries?

    Of course. It's possible to create new control. But it might not be needed for your plugin. List control can take three list items (text) and two icons, which might be enough for all the data you want to display (avatar and status as icons), friendly name (skype name) as text1, status (new message from user or such) as text 2 (or you can use list coloring), and user status as text3.
