There is currently no specific CSV layer type in the API. Instead you can use a FeatureCollection to include the layer within your map, or alternatively use a GraphicsOverlay to include in the map view but outside the map (i.e. if you save the map, feature collections are included but graphics overlays are not).

For examples/samples see:

Thanks Mike .
But I look into those references but don't find it useful until
there is any way to upload csv file.
Is there any exact way to upload a csv file in latest runtime sdk for .net wpf and to extract information from csv file.
because as sdk there is no layer exist as "csvLayer" class.
so could you please assist me on the csv file upload and extract info from the same .
