The Asset component is a visual representation of an asset file such as a video or a PDF document. Use it when assets need to be presented to the user in a visual way but without necessarily showing the actual asset, for instance in a file selector, a drag-and-drop component, or when listing files. The Asset component composes the AssetIcon component.

Code examples

An image asset and an archived image asset

By default an asset with the type image will render the src attribute directly, like a HTML <img /> element.

If asset status is set to archived, an image icon is displayed instead of the actual image.
