I've followed the directions I've found to the best of my knowledge, but I still am missing the reference to EJ. 

In my root Web.config I'm adding the assemblies as so:

<add assembly="Syncfusion.EJ, Version=12.4450.0.24, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3d67ed1f87d44c89"/>
<add assembly="Syncfusion.EJ.Mvc, Version=12.4300.0.24, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3d67ed1f87d44c89"/>

I'm also adding the namespace in the root web.config as well as the view web.config as:
        <add namespace="Syncfusion.MVC.EJ" />
        <add namespace="Syncfusion.Mvc.Shared" />

Yet it still doesn't find it, am I missing something?

Hi Marcos,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


Query : “Does not contain a definition for EJ and no extension. I've followed the directions I've found to the best of my knowledge, but I still am missing the reference to EJ.”


We have analyzed your query and we are unable to reproduce the reported error in our end. We suspect that the problem here is, not proper configuration in the following cases.


1.       Ensure the following basic syncfusion DLL’s are referred in your application or not.

1.       Syncfusion.EJ.dll

2.       Syncfusion.Ej.mvc.dll

2.       In our application we have a root configuration file (web.config) present in the Application. In that we need to include the following assembly reference into the <assemblies> tag.


       Please add the following code snippet to Application web.config file.



          <add assembly="Syncfusion.EJ, Version=xx.xxxx.x.xx, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" />

          <add assembly="Syncfusion.EJ.Mvc, Version= xx.xxxx.x.xx, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken= xxxxxxxxxxxxxx " />


3.       In our application we have another web.config file present in the Application -> Views Folder -> web.config file. In that we need to include the following namespace.


Please add the following code snippet to Views web.config file.


  <add namespace="Syncfusion.JavaScript"/>

    <add namespace="Syncfusion.MVC.EJ"/>


4.       Once completed all the above processing, close and open the _layout.cshtml file if it’s in open state.

5.       Then it resolves the EJ undefined error in your application.
