node.js is not updating the variable

Issue

I am trying to write one functionality where i am trying to read one csv file , and before that i am trying to check the headers of that perticular csv file are given correctly or not.Below is my code

 let validHeaders = false;
 fs.createReadStream(path)
 .pipe(csv.parse({headers : true , ignoreEmpty : true}))
 .on('headers',async function(headers){
  validHeaders = await CustomValidation.isValidRowsExists(headers);
  console.log(validHeaders); // here i am getting true
 .on('data',async function(req,res,data){
  console.log(validHeaders); //here i am getting false
  if(validHeaders){ //do something

This is my CustomValidation class

class CustomValidation{
 isValidRowsExists = async(csvRows) =>{
  for(let i=0;i<csvRows.length;i++){
    if(csvRows[0]==='Col1 && csvRows[1]==='Col2 ....){
    return true;
   }else{ 
    return false;
   }
  }
 }
}
module.exports = new CustomValidation;

How i can use the validHeaders value

Solution

Probably you need something like this:

const main = async () => {
  const csvStream = fs
    .createReadStream(path)
    .pipe(csv.parse({ headers: true, ignoreEmpty: true }));

  const validHeaders = await new Promise((resolve) =>
    csvStream.on("headers", (headers) =>
      resolve(CustomValidation.isValidRowsExists(headers))
    )
  );

  csvStream.on("data", (data) => {
    if (validHeaders) {
      console.log(data);
    }
  });
};

main();
