Error CS0117 after adding SfDataGrid DLLs


I try to test the SfDataGrid. After adding the references as described in the getting started guide I get 2 Errors saying that
the two resource strings "ApplicationName" and "Hello" are not defined.
I attached a screenshot.
I am testing this with Visual Studio 2015. I created a new solution (Blank App Xamarin Forms Portable)  with nothing in it and just added the DLLs.

Any Ideas, what the problem may be?

Hi Jens Bohrmann,

We have analyzed your query “Getting error saying resource strings ApplicationName and Hello are not defined”. In order to resolve this error, you need to update the Xamarin NuGet packages to version or above. SfDataGrid dlls support from version of Xamarin NuGets. By default a new solution (Blank App Xamarin Forms Portable) will be created with Xamarin.Forms NuGet package version So you have to manually update the NuGets to or above for using our product dlls.

You can update the nuget packages by right clicking on the project and choosing “ManageNugetPackages” option. Or you can use the Tools->NugetPackageManager->PackageManagerConsole to manually update the nuget packages to a particular version.

Please let us know if this helps.

Hi Prasanth,

this worked. First I had the Problem that my application did not work anymore after upgrading to the latest Xamarin.Forms version
since my App is compiled for API Level 21 and the latest Xamarin.Forms relys on API Level 23. After removing all packages and references and
reinstalling Xamarin Nuget Packages to 1.4.4. now everything works except some warnings about iCCP and an unrecognized sRGB Profile.
But for my small examples I will just ignore these warnings as the app is working correctly.
