After downloading, and installing the latest version, I now have two typescript compile error within the MotorDB Project:

Type ‘{}’ is missing property ‘Identifier’ from type ‘Policy’.
Types of property ‘extend’ of types ‘KnockoutObservableArray<{}>’ and ‘KnockoutObservableArray<Policy>’ are incompatible:
Call signatures of types ‘(requestedExtenders: { [key: string]: any; }) => KnockoutObservableArray<{}>’ and ‘(requestedExtenders: { [key: string]: any; }) => KnockoutObservableArray<Policy>’ are incompatible:
Type ‘{}’ is missing property ‘Identifier’ from type ‘Policy’.
Types of property ‘peek’ of types ‘KnockoutObservableArray<{}>’ and ‘KnockoutObservableArray<Policy>’ are incompatible:
Call signatures of types ‘() => {}[]’ and ‘() => Policy[]’ are incompatible:
Type ‘{}’ is missing property ‘Identifier’ from type ‘Policy’.
Types of property ‘concat’ of types ‘{}[]’ and ‘Policy[]’ are incompatible:
Call signatures of types ‘{ <U extends T[]>(…items: U[]): {}[]; (…items: {}[]): {}[]; }’ and ‘{ <U extend …

and

Cannot convert ‘KnockoutObservableArray<{}>’ to ‘KnockoutObservableArray<Policy>’

 

With the first error listed, all I could think of is what the? I should have focused on the second error message as that indicates the problem.

It appears that Generics are working within typescript, so all that is needed is one small change:

In the constructor of the PolicyViewModel class an observable array of Policy is defined


self.Policies = ko.observableArray([]);

All that needs to be done to correct the compiler errors is specify that the array must of of type Policy, and everything compiles:


self.Policies = ko.observableArray<Policy>();
