No Scaffold options on MVC Projects in VS2013 RRS feed

  • User-1350784787 posted


    Trying to do some ASP.NET MVC development in VS2013 Premium with Update 2. I get none of the context menu options.

    For example, if I right-cliock on 'Controllers' then 'Add', the Scaffold option does not appear.

    Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling VS2013 (with restarts). I have checked that the Scaffold extensions are in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Web\Mvc\Scaffolding\Templates

    I have read other threads where others have the same probl;em and have not found a solution, but I thouight I might as well ask again.

    Welcome to asp.net forum.

    Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 (currently RC) provides the ability to extend ASP.NET Scaffolding to meet the requirements of your scenario. With this functionality, you can create a customized scaffolding template and add it to Add New Scaffold dialog.

    To use ASP.NET Scaffolding, you must have:

    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2013
    • Web Developer Tools (part of default Visual Studio 2013 installation)
    • ASP.NET Web Frameworks and Tools 2013 (part of default Visual Studio 2013 installation)

    Please check it on your side.

    In addition, you can learn ASP.NET Scaffolding in Visual Studio 2013 below.
