"The type or namespace 'Syncfusion' could not be found." error while in Android context.


I am attempting to use Syncfusion with a .NET MAUI project that I am working on, but Visual Studio for Mac preview can not find the namespace for Syncfusion while in the Android context. The iOS and Maccatalyst contexts are able to find the namespace just fine. Similarly, adding Syncfusion to a page's XAML produces a similar error. This is using .NET 7.0.

  1. Create a new .NET MAUI project in the latest Visual Studio for Mac preview.
  2. Go into the NuGet packages and add Syncfusion.Maui.Core.
  3. Attempt to add "using Syncfusion.Maui.Core.Hosting;" to the top of the MauiProgram class as well as attempt to use the builder.ConfigureSyncfusionCore(); method.
  4. Note the errors produced by Visual Studio while in the Android context, but switching to the iOS or Maccatalyst context produces no errors.
EDIT: The app seems to have no issue compiling and running on Android, could there be an issue with Visual Studio for Mac preview?
