Convert CSV to PNG

Files with CSV (Comma Separated Values) extension represent plain text files that contain records of data with comma separated values. Each line in a CSV file is a new record from the set of records contained in the file. Such files are generated when data transfer is intended from one storage system to another. Since all applications can recognize records separated by comma, import of such data files to database is done very conveniently.

Steps to convert CSV to PNG in C#

GroupDocs.Conversion allows developers to convert the CSV file to PNG format in an easy and intuitive way just using a few lines of code as described below:

  • Create an instance of Converter class and pass source CSV file path as a constructor parameter. You may specify absolute or relative file path as per your requirements.
  • Declare SavePageStream delegate, which should provide a stream to store converted page of CSV document.
  • Create an instance of ImageConvertOptions class and set Format property to GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Png.
  • Call Converter class Convert method and pass the filename for the converted PNG file and the ImageConvertOptions object from the previous step as parameters.
// Load the source CSV file
using (Converter converter = new Converter("sample.csv"))
{
    string outputFileTemplate = Path.Combine(outputFolder, "converted-page-{0}.png");
    GroupDocs.Conversion.Contracts.SavePageStream getPageStream = page => new FileStream(string.Format(outputFileTemplate, page), FileMode.Create);

    // Set the convert options for PNG format
    var options = new ImageConvertOptions { Format = GroupDocs.Conversion.FileTypes.ImageFileType.Png };   
    // Convert to PNG format
    converter.Convert(getPageStream, options);
}
