    I have wired up my listbox with the "OnDemandManual" virtualization mode, along with a data virtualization item template like so.
    <telerikPrimitives:RadDataBoundListBox x:Name="lbJobSearchResults"
                                                       EmptyContent=" "
                                                       ItemsSource="{Binding JobSearchResults}"
                                                       ItemTemplate="{StaticResource SearchResultListTemplate}"
                                                       SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedJobResult, Mode=TwoWay}"
                            <Button Margin="-12, 0, -12, 0"
                                    Content="load more"
                                    Command="{Binding LoadMoreJobsCommand, Mode=OneWay}" />

    As you can see, I would like to fire off a command when i click on the load more button.  but the command doesn't even seem to be registering.  is this possible via commanding, or do I need to call the command via my code-behind?

    Hi Dele,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    In order to have the proper DataContext passed to the underlying ContentControl that visualizes the DataVirtualizationItemTemplate , you should also set the DataVirtualizationItemContent property to the view model that contains the command instance:

    <telerik:RadDataBoundListBox x:Name="radListBox" DataVirtualizationMode="OnDemandManual" DataVirtualizationItemContent="{Binding}">

    Still, this code will not work, because I have found a bug with updating the Content property. I would like to thank you for bringing our attention to this issue. Your Telerik points are updated as a token for our gratitude for your time and feedback.

    The bug will be fixed in the next internal build (available within a week or two). Currently you may use a StaticResource binding and set the Command property as a local value of the button.

    Once again - thanks for your feedback. Do not hesitate to contact us with any question/problem you may have with our tools.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Thanks for the info Georgi.

    I already have a workaround, but will look forward to when this is available.
