The Smart on Fhir protocol requires http fhir messages to be sent with an http header["Authorization"] value that is returned from the smart on fhir server during oauth2 initialization.

There is no way that I can see to add the authorization token to the fhir client so that it is sent with the http request, and hence no way that I can see to use the fhir client with smart on fhir.

This is the code from my Bearer authorize unit test...

FhirClient validationFhirClient = new FhirClient("");
            validationFhirClient.OnBeforeRequest += (object sender, BeforeRequestEventArgs e) =>
                // Replace with a valid bearer token for this server
                e.RawRequest.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Bearer XXXXXXX");

Then you can just use the API as normal.
There is no clean way of doing the SMART authentication steps, as these require a browser to do it, and depends on where you are running the client to be able to do it.
I've been considering writing a couple of samples that do this in WPF
