[SOLVED] Error: Property "" does not exist on type ""


I am following this tutorial to setup ionic app: https://angular-meteor.com/tutorials/whatsapp2/ionic/setup

and at the end of bootstrapping I keep getting the errors mentioned below:
I’ve tried installing ionic, cordova and these plugins multiple times but to no use.


import { Component } from ‘@angular/core’;
import { Platform } from ‘ionic-angular’;
import { StatusBar } from ‘@ionic-native/status-bar’;
import { SplashScreen } from ‘@ionic-native/splash-screen’;

import { TabsPage } from ‘…/pages/tabs/tabs’;

templateUrl: ‘app.html’
export class MyApp {
rootPage:any = TabsPage;

constructor(platform: Platform, statusBar: StatusBar, splashScreen: SplashScreen) {
platform.ready().then(() => {
// Okay, so the platform is ready and our plugins are available.
// Here you can do any higher level native things you might need.
if (platform.is(‘cordova’)) {

        Property 'hide' does not exist on type 'typeof SplashScreen'.

  L20:    SplashScreen.hide();

Change StatusBar to statusBar (you put it in your constructor) and SplashScreen into splashScreen (as in your constructor).


BTW if you set the post that answered your question to solved, it will automatically the solved checkmark :wink:
