Implementing MVVM pattern

The requirement is to allow users to select options for a string field implementing either the DropDown and Picker editors in a MVVM pattern.
Kindly refer me to a example(s) of how to achieve this correctly without going down the code behind route.

Good day,

Thank you for your response - it covers the MVVM example of a SfPicker 100%.
My requirement relates to the picker/dropdown editor found as part of the SfDataForm solution.
Typically I need to populate the items in the dropdown or picker editor with values supplied from a view model class.
So far I have only found examples of doing it behind. My own attempts to use a binding approach has failed.

xaml:      <dataform:DataFormDropDownItem Editor ="DropDown" Name="Cause" />

code behind:
         public class SourceProviderExt : SourceProvider
            public override IList GetSource(string sourceName)
                var ItemList = new List<string>();
                if (sourceName == "Cause")
                    ItemList.Add("Wear and tear");
                    ItemList.Add("Manufacturer prescription");
