XAML Command aspect in user controls

I tried to use the XAML Command aspect inside the datacontext of a user control as follows:

public ICommand UseSelectedAddressCommand { get; private set; }

public bool CanExecuteUseSelectedAddressCommand => MySelectedAddress != null;

private void ExecuteUseSelectedAddressCommand()
      Mapper.Map(MySelectedAddress, MyAddress);

This worked perfectly on a normal XAML form, but not within a user control.
However, I was able to fix this by explicitly specifying the ExecuteMethod and CanExecuteProperty:

[Command (ExecuteMethod = "ExecuteUseSelectedAddressCommand", CanExecuteProperty = "CanExecuteUseSelectedAddressCommand")]

I don't know why this happens, but at least it works now. Anyway, maybe this could be improved in some future release of PostSharp.

    I've tested this both on a Window and a UserControl and I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. Are you using the latest PostSharp version 5.0.29?

    I've also noticed that you're not following the naming conventions correctly. In your case, the method names should be UseSelectedAddressCommand, CanExecuteUseSelectedAddress, and ExecuteUseSelectedAddress as described at http://doc.postsharp.net/command.

    If this renaming does not solve your issue, could you please provide us a (minimal) example which reproduces the issue?

    Best regards,
