This example demonstrates
The context menu is being displayed when you right-click an appointment item in the calendar. The example creates an email with the subject of the appointment and confirms the date. If you have entered a contact at the bottom of the appointment form, the email is automatically addressed to this contact.
Please see the source code, there're two places commented with Edit where you can adjust the caption of the button as well as the subject and the body of the email.
