How to use EventToCommandBehaviour (from Prism) to get CellTapped event in the ViewModel? (MVVM Pattern)

Hi, I have implemented an SFSchedule control in my Xamarin.Forms UWP app. But I'm not being able to make the CellTapped event call a command in my ViewModel when i click in some Day Cell with the mouse. You can see that i'm using the MVVM Prism Framework, which has the EventToCommandBehaviour. See my XAML code for the ScheduleControl:


<syncfusion:SfSchedule x:Name="schedule"
                               DataSource="{Binding Meetings}"
                <b:EventToCommandBehavior Command="{Binding DayClieckedCommand}"

And here you can see the Command in my ViewModel

        public DelegateCommand<CellTappedEventArgs> DayClickedCommand => new DelegateCommand<CellTappedEventArgs>(DayClicked);
        public void DayClicked(CellTappedEventArgs args)

Currently, i'm not being able to even call the method to just print a message for debug purposes. I don't know why the behaviour on the XAML is not calling the Command. Is there another possibility to call commands in the ViewModel, avoiding CodeBehind?

Well, right now im not concerning with parameters, im just trying to call the method, one step at a time. But after, i will need to get in this command the Day that was clicked, to open another page with a Schedule in DayView mode, so i can edit or add appointments in that specific day. I'm kind of lost there because those parameters really blow my mind :)

If anyone can help me please, i'm kind stuck here. Thanks in advance.

Paying it forward in case anyone searches for this and is using  Corcav Behaviors  like I am in my MVVM architecture...here is all you need to do

The above sample will pass in the entire schedule control.

If you just want the CellTappedParameters then simply use this code 

Then in the command cast it like so...
