Custom action message can't be found during compilation

So I created a custom action message, under the laser_line_extraction/action folder:

CornerExtractionAction.action:

#goal definition
bool flag
---
#result definition
geometry_msgs/Point[] points
---
#feedback
geometry_msgs/Point[] points

by which I include it in my executables .cpp as such:

#include <laser_line_extraction/CornerExtractionAction.h>

also tried as:

#include "laser_line_extraction/CornerExtractionAction.h"

but when I run catkin build, I get this error message and I couldn't figure out yet what's the problem.

/home/alexnic/conbotics/src/cb_spraybase/cb_perception/laser_line_extraction/src/corner_action_client.cpp:4:10: fatal error: laser_line_extraction/CornerExtractionAction.h: No such file or directory

I also tried with deleting devel and build folder but yet the problem exist. I'll also post relevant files for your reference. I would appreciate it if anyone identifies my mistake. Thank you in advance. (Running on ROS1 melodic)

Are you sure you've followed all the steps in creating action messages and compiling the action?

Also, the action file has a bool which is a std_msgs; in CMakeLists perhaps you should add that in find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS ...)?

Actually indeed the problem was that I forgot to define the std_msgs. I also added <run_depend>message_generation</run_depend> in the package.xml file. Thank you for your answer

I fixed it through your recommendations. First I forgot to define the std_msgs (for the boolean) and include them in the package.xml. Second, I added <run_depend>message_generation</run_depend> in the package.xml file. Thank you for your replies.

Try this.

add_dependencies(corner_action_server ${laser_line_extraction_EXPORTED_TARGETS} ${catkin_EXPORTED_TARGETS})
add_dependencies(corner_action_client ${laser_line_extraction_EXPORTED_TARGETS} ${catkin_EXPORTED_TARGETS})
