I have a .servicecontract model and have added a message to that model.  I then add a Data Contract Message Part.  When I use the properites of that message part to set its type to a datacontract type (which has been defined in the my .datacontract model) the select is empty?  Any ideas as to why this might happen?

I have extended the guidance pack and added one Recipe only.  This adds datacontracts to the model.  They all validate and the generate code functionality works fine on them.

Do I have to set some type of dependency somewhere?

Thanks for any help!

Hi Zack123,

The type selector pops up empty if no Data Contract model with at least one data contract element defined is found. Make sure you have a data contract model that complies with this requirements and save it. Saving the model persists your changes and this is also a requirement for making cross model references.
