ActiveX: Add something to outlook calendar

I am having a web page where you can record and show meetings. I want to add a button/checkbox, so that if checked the meeting will also be recorded in the outlook calendar.

Is there a way to do this in Javascript/Active X?

Thx for help

After doing a little looking, I've determined a couple things...

You could do this by generating either an ICS file which your user could click to download and open (which would prompt the user to add the data to their calendar)

OR

You could generate an iCalendar meeting request email which could be sent to the user to accept.

The first of the two would definitely require some server side activity, php/jsp/asp etc.

The second could potentially be done with javascript or just use a formmail like backend app which you wouldn't have to write.
Here is an example from google groups in php on how to generate the invite: http://groups-beta.google.com/group/uk.net.web.authoring/browse_thread/thread/77df63a60eec5d6a/905d60ad8c15f442
