Code-hinting in DW 9.10

Up until now, we have been following this guide to enable code-hinting in VS.
https://doc.dynamicweb.com/get-started/introduction/implementing/code-hinting-in-templates

When creating a new project, with the latest packages I now get a bunch of syntax errors in the code (see attachment).
Am I forgetting something, or is this due to the prepared move into DW 10, and that these templates should have been rewritten?

Also attached is the list of nuget packages installed.

Hi Martin,

We had to move some template functionality from the Dynamicweb package and into a separate provider package, since it will be replaced with a different implementation in DW10.
Make sure that you have a reference to the Dynamicweb.Rendering.Providers package and code-hinting (IntelliSense) should work again.

Best regards,
Morten

Thanks Morten, that helped :)

I still get a few syntax errors though, do you have any tips regarding them?
Should I add a reference netstandard too?

Hi Martin

You can 'build' the template solution using ctrl+b (or whatever your shortcut). Your solution will not build, and maybe give you errors. That is fine. Somehow that triggers a copy and load of the references packages/dlls. Then sometimes I have to close the solution and open it again after an update and code hinting works again.

RenderBlockList is a Rapido feature and requires Dynamicweb.Rapido package.

Hi Nicolai!

The Dynamicweb.Rapido package is already added, the solution has been rebuilt several times, and VS has been closed and reopened.
But I still get the two last errors. It is no big deal, since everyting else looks like it is working, but just annoying :P

Hi Martin,

It's a known issue with .NET Standard...

You should be able to fix it by adding a reference to your project - either by installing NETStandard.Library package or by manually adding a reference in your project file (*.csproj).

You can find more details about the issue here: https://github.com/dotnet/standard/issues/391

Thanks! The Pageview (netstandard) issue was fixed by adding this (below) to the web.config after I did what you said.

<compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.7.2">
  <assemblies>
    <add assembly="netstandard, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51" />
  </assemblies>
</compilation>
