Cannot find ButtonBaseExtensions.Command in SL4.dll

I solved my problem though, I'm curious what a better approach is. So please let me ask it.

I've just got the latest binaries for SL4, and tried to implement the RelayCommand as your sample

But, no luck, I couldn't compile because of the following xaml code,

<button cmd:ButtonBaseExtensions.Command={Binding SubmitCommand} Content="Submit" />

The error said something like "ButtonBaseExtensions doens't have a Command". Of course I included the namespace 'cmd', but it's weird since I searched for the ButtonBaseExtensions in both GalaSoft.MvvmLight.Extras.SL4.dll and GalaSoft.MvvmLight.SL4.dll by using the Reflector, there is no such a class or a property.

I've achieved what I wanted using EventToCommand, but I want to know where the ButtonBaseExtensions has gone.


Oh, I must say before I leave, 'Thank you for such a great toolkit!!'

Thanks for the kind words.

The ButtonBase class in Silverlight 4 now has a Command and CommandParameter properties, and thus ButtonBaseExtension has been removed from the SL4 version of the Toolkit. You can use:

<Button Command={Binding SubmitCommand} Content="Submit" />

Thank you for your reply, Laurent.

That's good news! Anyway, seems I need to dig into the SL4 much deeper :)
