Hi, 

Hope someone can help me out with this. 

I have created a new project in which I have successfully added Telerik UI ASP.Net MVC. I can use the following code in the index view of my project: 

@(Html.Kendo().DatePicker().Name("datepicker"))

 

However my issue is that I have split my project into areas, and for some reason the code above doesn't work in the index views in these areas. I get an Compilation error that reads:

"HtmlHelper<dynamic>' does not contain a definition for 'Kendo' and no extension method 'Kendo' accepting a first argument of type 'HtmlHelper<dynamic>' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?"

Do I need to add additional references somewhere in these areas?

Appreciate any help, thanks.

Hello Owen,

I have provided and answer in your support ticket on the same topic. I would suggest to continue our communication there in order to prevent thread duplication. 

For anyone else that is experiencing the same issue - in order to enable the Telerik UI for MVC HtmlHelpers in newly created MVC areas, the following steps have to be followed:

  • Reference the required Kendo scripts and styles in the Layout file of the area.

  • Reference the Kendo.Mvc.UI namespace in the web.config file inside the views folder of the area (usually located in Areas/AreaName/Views/web.config).

Regards,
