I have an application page (SP2010) where I have a SPUser object (the current user), now I would like to display this SPUser as an Hyperlink on the apsx, linked to his UserProfilePage (userdisp.aspx) like those links in a normal list (field Author or Editor). Sure I could make a new hyperlink control and use the attributes (?) of the SPUser object to build something that looks like it could be OOTB from SP - but it isn't.
Is there any "best practice way" or "official MS way" to display these information? Perhaps so that the lync status of the User will be shown too?
