Parameters

value

Remarks

This method sets the text value for StandardDataFormats.Text. It's the equivalent of calling dataPackage.setText(StandardDataFormats.Text).

Examples


function registerForShare() {
    var dataTransferManager = Windows.ApplicationModel.DataTransfer.DataTransferManager.getForCurrentView();
    dataTransferManager.addEventListener("datarequested", shareTextHandler);
}

function shareTextHandler(e) {
    var request = e.request;
    request.data.properties.title = "Share Text Example";
    request.data.properties.description = "A demonstration that shows how to share.";
    request.data.setText("Hello World!");
