Ribbon and Prism, Problem with Commands

Ribbon for WPF Forum

i handle a ButtonClick in the Ribbon in my ViewModel via Prism's DelegateCommands:

public ICommand SignalFilterCommand {get;private set;}
SignalFilterCommand = new DelegateCommand<ICheckableCommandParameter>(CommandBinding_Executed, 


internal bool CommandBinding_CanExecute(ICheckableCommandParameter parameter)
    if (parameter != null)
        parameter.Handled = true;

    return true;

internal void CommandBinding_Executed(ICheckableCommandParameter parameter)
    if (parameter.Handled)
        parameter.IsChecked = !parameter.IsChecked;
So what I'm trying to do is to set the IsChecked-State of the Button after its beeing checked by the user, the state changes, but i get no visual representation of the check(unchecked). If i move the IsChecked-handling to the CanExecute-method, the state also changes, but the visual representation is always checked...

What's wrong here??

Hi Jürgen,

The parameter.IsChecked should be set in CanExecute, since that is where we check for it. You also need to maintain the checked state in some external variable (e.g. myFlag).

In CanExecute, you'd add the line:
parameter.IsChecked = myFlag;
In Executed, you'd change to the line:
myFlag = !myFlag;
