How do I create the correct ICommand (or RelayCommand)

I want to create:

AllCustomers as ObservableCollection(Of Customer)

where Customer is:

Public Class Customer
  Public Property ID as integer
  Public Property Name as String
  Public Property Cmd as ICommand (or RelayCommand)
End Class

So that when AllCustomers is bound to the ItemSource of a ListBox
and the Name and ID are shown via a data template, I can click the Name or ID and go to a routine where I can know what the ID of the customer is.

I know this is doable and I probably need another class that will inherit from ICommand or RelayCommand, but I don't understand WPF commanding well enough to do it.

Can someone help?

I guess I should have added that I'm starting with a dataset of customer info....looping through the rows building my collection....and wondering how to build the command.

Thx

you need to inherit from ICommand and create a command of your own, take a look at this tutorial for more info

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/WPF/wpfcommands.aspx


once you have your command, you can bind these to the button's command property ,(you may need to modify the style of the button so that it would look less like a button and more like a label in ur case)

I had already found this article, but it was not as easy to follow as I hoped.

Nonetheless, it contained the correct info and I was able to figure it out.

Is the requirement to call the routine every time a selection is made in the list?
If so you can bind the Listbox's SelectedItem property to a Customer-type property in your class - SelectedCustomer in the example below.
The setter is then called whenever the selection is changed , passing the Customer instance as the new value, and there's no need for a command.

                   SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedCustomer}">
