there is a function that returns the contracts.id through the symbol.
without going through the SymbolLookupEventArgs event?

You can use:
var client = GFApi.CreateClient();
….
var contractID = client.Contracts.Get("ESZ22")?.ID;

But it can return null if the contract is not loaded from a server

For guaranteed results, you still need to use:
client.Contracts.Lookup.BySymbol("ESZ22");
and
“SymbolLookupEventArgs event”
