Add this file to your project. Then, reference this and jQuery TypeScript definition file in your .ts-file.
/// <reference path="TypeScript/jquery.d.ts" /> // File from the zip archive or from the installation folder... /// <reference path="TypeScript/dx.all.d.ts" /> // ...or file from GitHub /// <reference path="TypeScript/devextreme.d.ts" />
