It may be that intellisense in Visual Studio is not working. A quick fix if you are using an "out-of-webroot" project is to copy Sitecore.Kernel.dll from the webroot's bin folder to the out-of-webroot's bin folder, remove the out-of-webroot's Reference if there is one, and add (back in) the Reference using the newly copied Sitecore.Kernel.dll, making sure to set the Reference's Copy Local property to false.
