CSV to Array

I try to load a CSV file into Array , but seems that, the way I did it myData does't exist out of "table.response = function" , any Ideas ? or someone do it in a diferent way?
Thanks

var Datalen = 0;
var myData =[];

// create ActiveWidgets data model - text-based table
var table = new Active.Text.Table;

// provide data URL - plain text comma-separated file
table.setURL("companies.csv");

var defaultResponse = table.response;
table.response = function(data){
defaultResponse.call(table, data);
Datalen=table.getCount();
for(var x=0; x< Datalen; x++) {
fieldcolum0 = table.getText( x, 0);
fieldcolum1 = table.getText( x, 1);
fieldcolum2 = table.getText( x, 2);
fieldcolum3 = table.getText( x, 3);
fieldcolum4 = table.getText( x, 4);

myData.push([fieldcolum0, fieldcolum1, fieldcolum2, fieldcolum3, fieldcolum4]);
}
alert(myData[0][0]);
}
// start asyncronous data retrieval
table.request();

// create javascript object
var obj = new Active.Controls.Grid;

// set unique id
obj.setId("grid1");

obj.setRowProperty("count", Datalen);
obj.setColumnProperty("count", myColumns.lenght);
obj.setDataProperty("text", function(i, j){return myData[i][j]});
obj.setColumnProperty("text", function(i){return myColumns[i]});

alert(myData[1][2]);

Sorry typing mistake, "lenght" instead of "length", works, but the issue now is ... sometimes need to refresh manually to show the data .
How could I implement a Timeout in this example?
Thanks

Carlos,

the table.request() is executed asynchronously, so you have to wait until the .response() method runs and refresh the grid.

Thank you Alex , helps a lot.

Is it possible to know how many "Items" (total or per row) inside a CSV file?
