Upload string to dropbox as .txt file

Upload string to dropbox as .txt file

Hi guys,
I've just completed the tutorial about the new "saver" application provided by dropbox. The upload with a predefined url like the koala picture at the tutotrial works pretty well. But my problem is that I have a string defined at my code and I want to save this string to a .txt-file and upload that file to my dropbox account. At the tutorial one has to defined the options like:
var options = { files:['url': '...', 'filename':'...'], etc. }
But like described above I have no url. Any idea? Thanks in advance.
Ps. where could I change the location of the save-file from "saves" (default) to custom folder?

Per your other thread, you're probably not going to end up using the Saver anyway. 🙂 If you use the Core API to upload the file, you can easily upload whatever content you want directly.
