The "No Data" Text and input directly changes the HTML text. By adding HTML you can give your app a bit more proffesional styling and link to a form like this below. So when you have nothing on a table of list view it looks really cool.
So if you go to options on a list or tabel go to "options" you can simply paste your HTML into the ""No Data" Text" field option.
<p>Oh no you have no references. <a href="page you want the link to go to/">Click here</a> </p><a href=#></a><img src="url of image "></a>
You will need to create a image and give it a URL http://tinypic.com/?t=postupload Is good.
You will need to do some CSS styling too.
