7.2 Add Generic to Entity

An error is triggered when assigning a value to a generic that is not defined in an entity.

Place the editor cursor on the error's line and press Ctrl + 1, select Add generic ... from the list of quick fix proposals and press Enter.

Tip: If the entity is instantiated multiple time across the project, the Refactor Add Generic Wizard is opened. See here.
