I use MVVM and I didn't find out yet how to set RadDataForm in "AddNewItem" or "Edit" mode via ViewModel. There is a property "Mode" of type "RadDataFormMode" and it would be great if I can change that property in ViewModel and bind the View to that but sadly it has no setter. So how to achieve this in a MVVM friendly way?

Hi,

Indeed, the Mode property is a ReadOnly.
What I can suggest you invoking the proper RadDataFormCommands (for example RadDataFormCommands.AddNew) in code.

For the moment I use a custom DataFormCommandProvider and invoke the commands as you suggested but that makes it necessary to import some Telerik stuff into my ViewModel project and I don't like that. Until now my ViewModel project was a Portable Class Library so I can use it with a Telerik WPF UI and a non-Telerik Windows Phone UI. Now I have to use separate ViewModel projects just because there is no way to set the RadDataForms mode directly. That works but as I said it would be great if we can just set the Mode property to another value.
