Many users want to print information from your line of business (LOB) application. This post covers the simple case where the user wants to print a copy of what they see on the screen. But instead of putting the print code in the code behind file, it follows a Model-View-View/Model (MVVM) approach.

3) Build a button to launch the printing and bind the Command property of the button to the property created in 2 above.
