To edit the queue items, you can add another item (“Edit”) to the context menu:

It will open a modal dialog with task details:

This context menu can be defined like this:

queueConfig: DayPilot.QueueConfig = {
  contextMenu: new DayPilot.Menu({
    items: [
      {
        text: "Edit...",
        onClick: async (args) => {
          const form = [
            {name: "Text", id: "text"},
            {name: "Type", id: "type", type: "select", options: [
              {name: "Type 1", id: "type1"},
              {name: "Type 2", id: "type2"},
            ]},
          ];

          const data = args.source.data;
          const modal = await DayPilot.Modal.form(form, data);
          if (modal.canceled) {
            return;
          }
          this.queue.control.events.update(modal.result);

        }
      },
      {
        text: "Delete",
        onClick: (args) => {
          this.queue.control.events.remove(args.source);
        }
      }
    ]
  }),

To display the custom field in the task item, you can use the onBeforeEventRender event:

onBeforeEventRender: (args) => {
  args.data.html = DayPilot.Util.escapeHtml(args.data.text) + "<br>" + args.data.type;
  // ...
}

This example assumes you are working with the Angular project from the Angular Scheduler: Drag and Drop Task Queue tutorial.
