I was trying to learn Razor pages. I use Visual Studio, but I'm pretty new to it. I followed an official getting started guide for installation process - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/tutorials/razor-pages/razor-pages-start?view=aspnetcore-2.2&tabs=visual-studio . Then I tried implementing an example of w3schools - https://www.w3schools.com/asp/razor_syntax.asp - "Reading User Input". VS seemed to not recognize it - it gave me errors. I did install and add "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc.Razor" through NuGet (also tried installing version 2.1.3 and latest 2.2.0) and I also added "using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc.Razor;" to the Startup.cs - still nothing. Maybe I need to connect it somehow?
