Is it possible to bind the multiple commands to the button.

I have a user control, which i am calling in my main application (parent application).

I want to handle a click command on both the controls (the user control as well as on the main window). However i am only able to get one.

Is there any way in which i can get this.

Any help is really appreciated.

Code Snippet:

public class MainWindowFooterCommands
    public static readonly RoutedUICommand FooterClickLocalCommand = new RoutedUICommand("Local Button Command", "FooterClickLocalCommand", typeof(MainWindowFooterCommands));

private void MainWindowFooterBindCommands()
    CommandBinding cmdBindingBXClick = new CommandBinding(MainWindowFooterCommands.FooterClickLocalCommand);
        cmdBindingBXClick.Executed += ClickCommandHandler;

void ClickCommandHandler(object sender, ExecutedRoutedEventArgs e)
    //Do Something

//Parent Control holding an instance of the footer control.
class MainWindow {

    public MainWindow() 
        CommandBinding cmdBindingBXClick1 = new CommandBinding(MainWindowFooterCommands.BXClickMainWindowCommand);
        cmdBindingBXClick1.Executed += LoadParent;  

        public void LoadParent(object sender, ExecutedRoutedEventArgs e)

You might be trying to aggregate multiple commands, which is a natural thing to want to do.

If you are using Prism, there is a class builtin for this called the CompositeCommand (scroll down a bit):

Otherwise, Josh Smith has a very good article on his implementation called a "Command Group":

There are some very nice scenarios you can rollup like this (for instance, "Save All"). A good tool for your bag of tricks.


AFAIK WPF doesnt offer anything out of the box to support multiple commandbindings at various levels, but you could try the following:

void ClickCommandHandler(object sender, ExecutedRoutedEventArgs e)
    IInputElement parent = (IInputElement) LogicalTreeHelper.GetParent((DependencyObject)sender);
    MainWindowFooterCommands.BXClickMainWindowCommand.Execute(e.Parameter, parent);

You might have to test whether your parent really is an IInputElement, though.
