Hello,

I'm working on project in ASP.NET MVC. I want to create module architecture. It means, that I want to create modules, in which I'm using Portable Areas and then with MEF I dynamically load this modules. And I have big problem with this one.

Because each module is Class library project, I cannot add @using statement for Telerik controls in Razor views. So I added reference to Telerik.Web.Mvc in Class library. From normal C# class (from Controllers and so on) I'm able to type using Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI.

But when I try this in Razor view, when I want to type @using Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI, I don't have ability to choose Telerik. The reference is added correctly, because when I create for example Grid in View, when I run app, everything works.

So problem is with the way, how Razor views load information for Intellisense. I added web configs, so Intellisense for Html helpers works, but not for Telerik. Of course, everything works fine, when I use MVC3 web application project, but not with Class library.

Do you know about this problem, or do you know, about some specific steps, which I have to accomplish to turn on intellisense for Telerik ?

Thanks.

I am having the exact same issue.  Works fine, until you get into Areas.  Even adding the namespace to the Web.Config in the areas does not help.  Html.Telerik() simply isn't recognized.

Hello guys,

Generally speaking, MVC Contrib is an external project and at this point I cannot tell what the reason for the problem is. If you send us a sample project where the problem,  that you refer to, can be reproduced, we will check it and do our best to help you.



Kind regards,

Same problem here.. Intellisense simply doesn't recognize Html.Telerik(), even with @using statements and namespaces registered in web.config.

i think you need a web.config in the root folder of your portable area.  try using these settings and placing it.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0">
            <assemblies>
                <add assembly="System.Web.Abstractions, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
                <add assembly="System.Web.Helpers, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
                <add assembly="System.Web.Routing, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
                <add assembly="System.Web.Mvc, Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
                <add assembly="System.Web.WebPages, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
            </assemblies>
        </compilation>
 
        <pages>
            <namespaces>
                <add namespace="System.Web.Helpers" />
                <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc" />
                <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax" />
                <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html" />
                <add namespace="System.Web.Routing" />
                <add namespace="System.Web.WebPages"/>
                <add namespace="Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI" />
            </namespaces>
        </pages>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

I ran into this same problem and managed to get intellisense working by doing the following:

1. Start -> Programs -> Visual Studio -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio Command Prompt

2. From the command prompt type in

GacUtil /i *PATH_TO_DLL_REFERENCED_IN_PROJECT*\Telerik.Web.Mvc.dll

You should get the message "Assembly successfully added to the cache"

3. At the command prompt type in

GacUtil /l Telerik.Web.Mvc

You should get a message similar to the following:

The Global Assembly Cache contains the following assemblies:
  Telerik.Web.Mvc, Version=2011.3.1306.340, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121f
ae78165ba3d4, processorArchitecture=MSIL

4. Copy the assembly information from the command line into the VIEWS\Web.Config of your project in the section of
<system.web>
  <pages ...>
    <controls>

in the form of an <add assembly> line:

<add assembly="Telerik.Web.Mvc, Version=2011.3.1306.340, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4" namespace="Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI" tagPrefix="Tel" />

5. Add the above <add assembly> entry into the PROJECT's Web.Config under the section of
<system.web>
    <compilation ...>
      <assemblies>

but without the Namespace and tagPrefix attributes

<add assembly="Telerik.Web.Mvc, Version=2011.3.1306.340, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4" />

6. Make sure both Web.Config files have an entry under the section
<pages>
  <namespaces>

for

<add namespace="Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI"/>

Build your solution and you should be good to go.
