When working in more advanced development scenarios, we often find ourselves leaning toward the MVVM pattern for producing cleaner, loosely coupled, easier-to-test code. But along with this comes the responsibility of ensuring that all the controls we are using can follow this pattern.
While it is very easy to work with the event-based model that exists across the .NET framework, events do not play well into the mindset of reducing traditional code-behind and instead handling logic within a ViewModel. This is where the Telerik EventToCommandBehavior class comes into use to allow your events to fire and your code to respond accordingly, all in the ViewModel without touching the code-behind of the .xaml files.
