Receiver type is forward declaration

I have this code (along with other stuff):

- (NSManagedObjectContext *) managedObjectContext
{
assert([NSThread isMainThread]);
if (_managedObjectContext != nil) {
return _managedObjectContext;
}
NSPersistentStoreCoordinator *coordinator = [self persistentStoreCoordinator];
if (coordinator != nil) {
_managedObjectContext = [[NSManagedObjectContext alloc] init];
[_managedObjectContext setPersistentStoreCoordinator: coordinator];
}

return _managedObjectContext;
}


These lines are giving me errors that class message is a forward declaration:

_managedObjectContext = [[NSManagedObjectContext alloc] init];
[_managedObjectContext setPersistentStoreCoordinator: coordinator];


What is this and how do I fix it?

You must import CoreData/CoreData.h in the file Supporting Files/YourApp-Prefix.pch:

#ifdef __OBJC__
    #import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
    #import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
    #import <CoreData/CoreData.h>
#endif
