Add Email functionality to Discussion Thread Context Menu

  Asked By: Eddy    Date: Jan 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3609

Wanted to share with the group.

Business requirement was to add Email functionality to Discussion Thread Context Menu.
Based on Mark Bower http://blogs.msdn.com/bowerm/articles/175691.aspx Customizing Context Menus for document libraries, it is easy to add this functionality to discussion threads.

Three ways :
1. Add the code to ows.js file.
2. Create your own custom ows.js file. //Best way and will be available globally.
3. Use CEWP to override function AddListMenuItems(m, ctx)

function AddListMenuItems(m, ctx)

if (typeof(Custom_AddListMenuItems) != "undefined")
if (Custom_AddListMenuItems(m, ctx))
if (ctx.listBaseType == BASETYPE_DISCUSSION)
// custom code begins
var strDisplayEmail = "Email this thread...";
var br = escapeProperly("\n");
var emailTo = " mailto:%20?subject=";
var myStrImage = "";

var myAction ="window.navigate('"+emailTo+itemTable.Subject+"&body=Title of the Discussion: - "+itemTable.Subject+br+br+escapeProperly( ctx.displayFormUrl)+"?ID="+ currentItemID + "&Source=" +GetSource()+"')";

CAMOpt(m, strDisplayEmail, myAction, myStrImage);

//custom code ends
