Injecting Data from MongoDB into Custom Component

Hello Retoolers!

I am fairly new to the platform and would like to know if/how I can take a data point (typically a 1-5 character set of text) from a MongoDB connection and inject it dynamically into a Custom Component/iFrame tool so it will automatically generate the indicator tool I am using that pulls the stock ticker from the Mongo daily watchlist.

I appreciate your advice/input very much and thank you in advance!


You can absolutely pass data from your app to your custom component. Here is a link to the custom component docs, specifically the section on passing data from your app to a custom component. Hope that helps!
