Display a CSV File in a GridView on an ASP.Net page

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // declare a new GridView
    GridView csvGrid = new GridView();

    // add GridView to page

    // declare csv parser passing in path to file
    using (CsvReader csvData = new CsvReader(Server.MapPath("products.csv")))
        // set GridView to use DataTable returned from parser as the source
        // for it's data. True is passed in to signify that file contains a
        // header row which will name returned DataColumn's based on values
        // read in from header row.
        csvGrid.DataSource = csvData.ReadToEnd(true);

    } // dispose of parser

    // tell GridView to create display based on values from DataSource
