This example demonstrates the use of the Text property. To use the code in this example, add an event listener to your app to handle the activated event. Then put this code in the function that this event listener calls.

//To see this code in action, add a call to ShareSourceLoad to your constructor or other
//initializing function.
private void ShareSourceLoad()
    DataTransferManager dataTransferManager = DataTransferManager.GetForCurrentView();
    dataTransferManager.DataRequested += new TypedEventHandler<DataTransferManager, DataRequestedEventArgs>(this.DataRequested);

private void DataRequested(DataTransferManager sender, DataRequestedEventArgs e)
    DataRequest request = e.Request;
    request.Data.Properties.Title = "Share Text Example";
    request.Data.Properties.Description = "An example of how to share text.";
    request.Data.SetText("Hello World!");
