Does anyone know of a tutorial on how to read data from a server side file with JS? I cant seem to find any topics on this when I google it. I tried to use but it does not seem to work. I just want to read some data from a file to display on the page. Is this even possible?
var CSVfile = new File("test.csv");
var result = CVSfile.open("r");
var test = result.readln();
To achieve this, you would have to retrieve the file from the server using a method called AJAX.
If you upload that to the directory that test.csv resides in on your webserver and load the page, you should see the contents of test.csv appear in the textarea defined.
