Recently, I was working on an ASP.NET MVC project using Visual Studio and the web project had strongly-typed views that were using model classes located in another class project in the same solution. The project itself got built successfully and was running fine until it tried to show those views, it returned the Compilation Error saying that the type or namespace name could not be found. In this article, I will show you what I tried and how I finally solved the problem.
When creating a new ASP.NET MVC project in Visual Studio, the project will use a Bootstrap front-end framework by default. But there are more sophisticated templates with the extended functionality available. I wanted to use one of those instead of the one provided by Visual Studio. I discovered AdminLTE, a dashboard & control panel theme built on top of the Bootstrap 3.0. This article will show you how I replaced the default Bootstrap framework with the AdminLTE template in an ASP.NET MVC project.
