MVVM in WPF Button (ButtonAdv)

The command and command parameter properties allow to execute any action on clicking the button control.

  • Command - The Command property accept all commands derived from interface ICommand.
  • CommandParameter - The CommandParameter property allows the user to provide additional data required in the command handler in-order to perform any operation.
