Hello,

I have the following code and I would like to get just the titles not the other values.

Can you please let me know how to edit this to work OR if there is a better way.

Please note that the csv delimiter is different in a couple of my files.

<script src="http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
/*
Example cars.csv:
Year;Make;Model;Length
1997,Ford,E350,2.34
2000,Mercury,Cougar,2.38
*/
d3.csv('cars.csv', function(csv) {
	csv.forEach(function(row) {
		document.write(Object.keys(row));
	});
});
</script>

Open in new window


Thank you!
Matt

What do you mean the titles - Year;Make;Model;Length ???
The code works but the titles should be seperated by commas.

Well I JUST want the first row with the names, I do not want it to repeat for every row, I am good at php but not javascript.

Hello Gary,

That worked.

I am confused because the page never stops loading, any ideas?

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>RSS Feed Manager</title>
<script src="http://d3js.org/d3.v3.min.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
</head>

<body>

<script type="text/javascript">
d3.csv('cars.csv', function(data){
	d3.keys(data[0]).forEach(function(item){
		document.write(item);
	})
});
</script> 

</body>
</html>
