R3 2021 for WinUI ships a new MVVM Helper called the Telerik EventToCommandBehavior. When using the MVVM pattern, you need to ensure all controls follow that pattern. This is where the EventToCommandBehavior MVVM Helper comes into play – it allows your events to fire and your code to respond accordingly, all within the ViewModel without the need to touch the code-behind. For example, this Helper will enable you to use an event in the ViewModel to execute a custom logic, bind a specific event to the desired command, define a custom command, etc.
