If you work with Silverlight and MVVM, you must have probably been forced to do some weird thing to bind to a property in your view model (say a Command) from a DataTemplate. Some of the common approaches I have seen and used myself are:
  • Using some kind of binding helper as a View’s resource.
  • Having a View Model wrap the entity of each collection item, and add the command to the View Model.
