Adding a reference to one assembly requires additional references!
Posted on 2008-06-10
I am trying to get straight in my head that sometimes when i add a reference to a project then it won't compile as it says that this assembly reference a,b,c,d so you must add a reference to a,b,c,d in my current project.
Confusing! :-) ... Actually i am quite used to it... and very easy to fix... just do exactly what it says...
The thing that is annoying me a little bit is that sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't....
Can anyone explain exactly in which scenerio it happens, is it if the other assembly exposes public methods (for example) which take parameters of another assembly.
Any ideas or help would be really appreciated...as i say its pretty easy to fix BUT i just wanted to know why ... so i can think my design up a little better..
Thanks in advance
