Check if there is an open option position

I want to see if my portfolio has an open call/put position in an underlying. I know there is a .IsLong and .IsShort for stocks but I can't find the same thing for options. The only other option is .Invested which will not state if it is a call or put.

You could get a list of symbol objects in     

option_invested = [x.Key for x in self.Portfolio if x.Value.Invested and x.Value.Type==SecurityType.Option]

By looping this list, you will find if those options are in long or short position. For example

for option in option_invested:
      if option.IsLong
      if option.IsShort 
      if option.ID.OptionRight == OptionRight.Call (get the option right)
      if option.ID.StrikePrice (get the strike price)
      if option.ID.Date (get the expiration date)

Is there a way to get the bid price? The secuirty identifier class does not have a feature to get an option's bid price
