C#: The type or namespace name 'Task<>' could not be found

Date: 2020-12-14 | csharp | dotnet-core | task


Overview

I'm building an app with .NET Core and using async Tasks in it. When I go to build it I'm faced with this error:

error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'Task<>' could not be found

How do I fix this?

Solution

Usually this just means you're missing an import statement. For Tasks, you'll need to import by adding this line to the top of your file:

using System.Threading.Tasks;
