[RESOLVED]troubleshooting type name issue – Twilio WebMatrix helper

Twilio just came out with an updated helper for WebMatrix, which I got installed and is now working correctly.

Unfortunately, I am still looking at the same error message in Visual Studio as I have been doing for the last 18 months:

"The type name "WebMatrix" does not exist in the type Twilio.WebMatrix.Twilio"

Every page where I use the direct:  @using Twilio.WebMatrix;   I get that same error message. Everything works.

Are there any additional troubleshooting steps I can take. Twilio does not care much to fix this, unless I start sending a gazillion SMS per day.

In my bin folder I have: Twilio.api.dll and Twilio.WebMatrix.dll.

Hi wavemaster,

Base on the Twilio.WebMatrix.xml file (in bin folder), we can found that there isn’t the
WebMatrix type in the Twilio.WebMatrix.Twilio type. I suggest that you could to check whether your code are correctly to use
Toilio WebMatrix helper.

On the other hand, you are using the third-party library, I suggest that you should post it to the
Twilio site.

Best Regards
