This article explains about how to bind the button with command in ViewModel for details view DataGrid. The DataContext of GridViewDefinition.DataGrid is not same as WPF DataGrid (SfDataGrid). So, you can bind the button to the command in ViewModel using Ancestor binding as in the below code snipet,


 x:Name="dataGrid" ColumnSizer="Star"
 ItemsSource="{Binding Path=OrdersDetails}">
        <syncfusion:GridViewDefinition RelationalColumn="OrderDetails">
                <syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="FirstDetailsViewGrid">
                        <syncfusion:GridTemplateColumn MappingName="CustomerID">
                                           Command="{Binding  Path=DataContext.ButtonCommand,                 
                                           RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorLevel=2, 
                                           Content="Click" />


public class ViewModel
    private ICommand _buttonCommand;
    private List<OrderInfo> _ordersDetails;
    /// <summary>
    /// Initializes a new instance of the <see cref="ViewModel"/> class.
    /// </summary>
    public ViewModel()
        OrderInfoRepository order = new OrderInfoRepository();
        OrdersDetails = order.GetOrdersDetails(100);
        _buttonCommand = new RelayCommand(ChangeCanExecute);
    public ICommand ButtonCommand
        get { return _buttonCommand; }
    public void ChangeCanExecute(object obj)
        MessageBox.Show("Button Command Executed");
    /// <summary>
    /// Gets or sets the orders details.
    /// </summary>
    /// <value>The orders details.</value>
    public List<OrderInfo> OrdersDetails
        get{ return _ordersDetails; }
        set{ _ordersDetails = value;}
