The My Data app lets you enter your own text and have that be treated the same way as a news feed or RSS feed. It lets you split your text into individual "messages" that can then be shown like an individual news article or in sequence in the shape of a ticker.
When the app style is set to "single article" then each time the page is shown again during playback, the app advances to the next available message.
Next to entering your text directly in the My Data app, you can also have the app retrieve your text from a text file you placed somewhere on the internet or from Dropbox.
You can configure the app using the following properties:
|Datasource||Select where the text should come from:
|Web address of .txt file||(Only for "External file") The web address (URL) of the text file as it is available on the internet.|
|Dropbox account||(Only for "Dropbox file") The Dropbox account you like to pick a file from. Add a Dropbox account by using the + button.|
|Selected file||(Only for "Dropbox file") The name of the file you selected on your Dropbox account.|
|New message starts||Select how the total text should be split:
|Style||Sets the way you like your articles to be displayed:
|Article style||(Only for "Single message" or "Vertical ticker" style) Sets the way you like individual articles to be displayed:
|Background color||(Only for "Rounded box" or "Rectangular box" article style) Set the background color of a single article box.|
|Transparency||(Only for "Rounded box" or "Rectangular box" article style) Set the background transparency of a single article box.|
|Scroll speed||(Only for "Ticker" style) Set the desired scroll speed of the ticker.|
And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.
