    The type or namespace name 'MyFirstForm' could not be found

    I'm new to Umbraco and all associated technologies. It is for that reason, I find the tutorials very valuable. I have followed the instructions in the tutorial in Documentation=>Getting Started=> Code =>Creating Forms, very carefully.

    I have a document called "Generic" that uses the view (GenericContactForm.cshtml) that loads the Partial View:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage

    @{ Layout = null; } @using MyFirstForm.Models;

    @{ Html.RenderPartial("~/Views/Partials/ContactForm.cshtml", new ContactFormViewModel()); }

    However, in spite of meticulously following these directions, I get the following error when calling http://localhost/generic:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Compilation Error Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

    Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name 'MyFirstForm' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

    Source Error:

    Line 3: Layout = null; Line 4: } Line 5: @using MyFirstForm.Models; Line 6:
    Line 7: @{

    Source File: c:\ESC_Test\ESCProject\Views\GenericContactForm.cshtml Line: 5

    Thanks in advance for any help to solve this. Once corrected, I will suggest an update to the otherwise great tutorial if appropriate.

    Thank you
