```php

<?php
use yii\helpers\Html;

```php
use yii\web\UploadedFile;  
use common\models\Asset;


public function actionCreate()

```php

/**
* Displays the asset as a blob

In order to render the file - let's say, an image - , apply this code in any view:


```php

use yii\helpers\Html;
use yii\helpers\Url;
[...]

```php

use yii\helpers\Html;
use yii\helpers\Url;

<?php if(strpos($model->contentType,'image')===false): //Not an image?>
<iframe src="<?=Url::to(['asset/get', 'id'=>(string)$model->_id]);?>" width="100%" height="600px"></iframe>
