I have attempted to create a file control and when user selects a .csv file, I intent to write the contents of csv file to a string.
I have taken your blog, Uploading and returning files in MVC
I have a file upload control,
<input type = "file" onchange = "ProcessCsv()" />

I defined an action result in my controller
public ActionResult ProcessCsv(HttpPostedFileBase file)
  // Need to read the csv file into a string
I get an error saying, "Reference Error: ProcessCsv() is not defined".

How do I pass the control from html to an action result?

Thanks in advance

<input type = "file" onchange = "ProcessCsv()" />
Your control definition looks like a client side HTML control. Thus any event defined will try to find it's method handled on client side in scripts.

Only server controls will raise or refer to server side events.
