No I don't, no I"m not.

What is this 'purist' approach of which you speak?

My understanding of the pattern is that the GUI stuff is separated from the ViewModel stuff. MVVM != WPF and in WPF both CAML and .cs code behind are used together to build a class. It is that class's responsibility to provide the UI to implement the ViewModel, as it were.

Nowhere in the MVVM pattern does it prescribe anything to do with code behind.

So some folk have taken it upon themselves to say 'thou shalt not have code behind' because (I think) if they don't , some careless programmers will start putting business logic in the code behind - which is bad, not because it is in the code behind but because it is in the UI class which should not be implementing business logic.

But I don't understand why people feel the need to write additional Xaml functionality - often quite complex and usually a variation on some theme functionality - to avoid using two or three lines of code in the code behind.

I believe it is wrong, as having UI functionality in C# in code behind is often more 'obvious' to the maintenance programmer, and frequently less complex.
