I'm new to mvvm in wpf.
I have a user-control (a view) that essentially is a listbox.
The ViewModel shows a wrapped collection of data from the model.
The data is a filtered subset from the ObjectContext of an entity framework model.

Is there any way that I can have a generic ViewModel that can be re-used to bind to copies of the user-control, so that each user control has a different set of items to display?
