System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection does not contain a definition for Query with dapper and c#

The following code when compiling gives the error message below:

'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection' does not contain a definition for 'Query' and no extension method 'Query' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

I have added Dapper using the nuget packager.

Any ideas? Thanks,


using (SqlConnection sqlConnection = new SqlConnection(Connectionstring))
    Member customer = sqlConnection.Query<Member>("SELECT * FROM member");
    return customer;


You need to place a using statement in your .cs file to make the Dapper extension methods available.

using ...;
using Dapper;
using ...;
