Remarks

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

Text is one of the data types that the DataPackage object supports directly. See the StandardDataFormats class for information on other supported data types.
