MapTo #1905

epayday created

Hi, I am trying to replicate part of the tutorial PhoneBook in regards to displaying the contents on a page of another table in the database, PayRateType table. In my PayRateTypeAppService class I have the following line of code.

return new ListResultDto<PayRateTypeListDto>(PayRateType.MapTo<List<PayRateTypeListDto>>());

For this line of code I get the following error. Error CS0117 'PayRateType' does not contain a definition for 'MapTo" The equivalent Person class does not appear to contain a definition for "MapTo" either, however this does not create an error? I think there is something going on behind the scene, but I am not sure how / why it works for the phonebook example and not for ours. Thanks,

    MapTo is an extension method. Normally, we would expect that your IDE finds it. Just add this to your code file

    using Abp.AutoMapper;
