Cannot find the designer partial for my designer

  • Cannot find the designer partial for my designer
  • Please help, my view .cshtml file is here:

    ~/Mvc/Views/ProductIntro/DesignerView.Product.cshtml

    My understanding from here:github.com/.../VirtualFile-structure-explainedis that feather translates the front /Frontend-Assembly/ so it should be finding it! 

    Here's my error:

  • Hi Chris,

    Can you please check and ensure that you have ControllerContainer attribute in AssemblyInfo.cs file. If no, please update the AssemblyInfo.cs file of the SitefinityWebApp by adding the following snippet (if it is missing):

    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Frontend.Mvc.Infrastructure.Controllers.Attributes;
    [assembly: ControllerContainer]
    This should fix the issue. You may also take a look at the following article under the Creating a List Widget section where this has been pointed out as well.

  • hahaha gets me every time...

    Can this attribute please be added to SitefinityWebApp assemblyinfo by default in a new project?

     

    Thanks
