A very simple CSV-export tool for C#, code ispired by a thread at Stackoverflow, (C) Chris Hulbert
This was previously published as a "Gist" but I moved it here, for easier forking/contributing.
- Excel-compatible export (separator detected automatically, friendly-trimming rows and values for compatibility)
- Escapes commas, quotes, multiline text
- Exports dates in timezone-proof format
- Extremely easy to use
Simply include one C# file into your project. Then:
var myExport = new CsvExport(); myExport.AddRow(); myExport["Region"] = "Los Angeles, USA"; myExport["Sales"] = 100000; myExport["Date Opened"] = new DateTime(2003, 12, 31); myExport.AddRow(); myExport["Region"] = "Canberra \"in\" Australia"; myExport["Sales"] = 50000; myExport["Date Opened"] = new DateTime(2005, 1, 1, 9, 30, 0); ///ASP.NET MVC action example return File(myExport.ExportToBytes(), "text/csv", "results.csv");
I've published this to Nuget.
This will simply add the cs-file to the root of your project.
