To retrieve whole option chain with IB API C#

Hello Everyone,

I wonder if it is possible to retrieve option chain using IB API C#. I know that I can request particular option price, but I would like to receive whole chain. Ideally, I would like to retrieve all chains at once. I am talking about options on particular security.

Update: I figured how to retrieve option chains info:
ibClient.ClientSocket.reqContractDetails(1, contract)

But the above does not return bid, ask and last price info. Is it possible to get these data at once, instead of requesting it for each contract?
