    I am using Kendo File Upload for upload files and after uploading I convert the file to Byte array and save it on Database in the Binary data format. My requirement is I want to display the uploaded files(Take byte array content of files from database and the convert it into Base64 string  and pass to View using View Bag,thees section is I I did) in the uploaded area,ie the area where I upload files.
        V<img src="@ViewBag.ImageData" />    @*ImageData Contain the files,taken from Dtabase
    @* The file Upload code,What changes are I done this code for display files in the Uploaded area ?
    <div class="box">
            File Upload Example
    <form method="post" action='@Url.Action("Save")'>
        <div class="demo-section k-content">
             <h6>Upload Attachments</h6>
        .Messages(m => m.Select("Add files here."))
        .Async(a => a
            .Save("Save", "Upload")
            .Remove("Remove", "Upload")
            .AutoUpload(false)).Events(events => events.Select("onSelect")))
            <script id="fileTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
                <span class='k-progress'></span>
                <div class='file-wrapper'>
                    <img class='file-icon #=addExtensionClass(files[0].extension)#' /> <!-- here im trying to bind the image -->
                    @*<h4 class='file-heading file-name-heading'>Name: #=name#</h4>
                        <h4 class='file-heading file-size-heading'>Size: #=size# bytes</h4>*@

    Hello Kedarnath,

    You could check the following approach for displaying initial files in the widget:


    Nevertheless it does not rely on the actual files, but on metadata provided by the developer in an array.

    .Files(files =>
        foreach (var f in Model)
