System.Web.Mvc missing reference to ModelClientValidationRule
I am trying to write some client validation in a class library. I added a link to System.Web.Mvc on my local machine here
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft ASP.NET\ASP.NET MVC 4\Assemblies\System.Web.Mvc.dll
, but I am getting the error
Could not find the type or namespace ModelClientValidationRule (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
I have targeted .Net Framework 4 and this MSDN link indicates it should be correct, so I'm a bit puzzled as to why the error is happening.
I am using VS2013 and have .Net 4.5 on my local machine, and have written client validation in other projects. I expect to be able to solve this problem by adding the MVC NuGet package, but I would like to explore the alternatives.
