Load csv file with createfileinput

I am trying to load a csv file with loadTable after a user uploads it with createFileInput. I can get createFileInput to work if i’m using an image but not with loadTable. Here’s the important bit of code:

input = createFileInput(handleFile);
  input.position(10, 10);

  function handleFile(file) {
    print(file);
    sheet = loadTable(file.name, 'csv', 'header', () => createElement('p', "done loading"));
  }

I get errors:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

I know I am misunderstanding how one of these functions works but I can not quite figure it out.

Thanks!

try:

loadTable(“data.csv”, “header, csv”)

not

loadTable(“data.csv”, “header”,“csv”)

https://processing.org/reference/loadTable_.html

Thanks but that didn’t do it.
Still says:

GET http://localhost:3000/roster.csv 404 (Not Found)

Have you already tried p5.File::data instead of p5.File::name for p5::loadTable()? :thinking:

p5js.org/reference/#/p5.File/data

Yes I did. I get these errors when I do that:

ERR_CONNECTION_RESET 400 (Bad Request)
ERR_CONNECTION_RESET 400 (Bad Request)
[object ReadableStream]
Uncaught (in promise) Error: [object ReadableStream]

It looks like it’s trying to load the entire csv file into the url, instead of the name of the file.

Is there something special about a csv file vs an image file because the same code works when I try it with an image. Don’t really understand.

I’ve made a test sketch w/ p5::createFileInput() + p5::loadTable() using p5.File::data and it worked for “.csv” files for me: :open_file_folder:

If you’ve got issues to run it on your local machine, you can read some tips on the link below: :link:

Hm…your example did not work with my csv file. Would you mind posting the one you used?

I get these errors:

p5:3 File "roster-small.csv" of type "text" was chosen.

I don’t understand how your example is working. I downloaded your csv and still get this error while running the code from the blocks.

Which OS & browser you’re using btW? Mine’s Win 8.1 w/ 64-bit Firefox DE. :fox_face:

For a 2nd “opinion”, here’s another screenshot w/ Vivaldi browser: :framed_picture:

What’s diff. from yours is the type of my file “cltop.csv” isn’t recognized; but yours is, as type “text”. :thinking:

I believe when p5.File::type property is “text”, the p5.File::data already contains the loaded asset. :flushed:

If it’s already loaded, we can’t use any loading function like
p5::loadTable() and such. :woozy_face:
