Unknown reference link target 'T:'.

May 27, 2010 at 3:30 PM


(just posted this in the Sandcastle forum: http://sandcastle.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=214070, not sure whether to post it here or there)

I get "Unknown reference link target 'T:'." warnings when I do something like this:

  1. Create generic abstract class "Foo<T>" (in external assembly, don't know if that matters)
  2. Create abstract subclass "Bar : Foo<Foobar>"
  3. Create subclass "Foobar : Bar"


  • 4737  Warn: CachedResolveReferenceLinksComponent: Unknown reference link target 'T:'.
  • Help file (HtmlHelp1) shows "Bar : Foo<T:>" instead of "Bar : Foo<Foobar>"

Any idea how to work around this problem?

Thanks for your help.
