Open Dialog Fragment buy clicking a button


I've just started with Xamarin, and I'm wondering how I can open a dialog fragment by clicking a button. I've managed to do it using Events, but I'm trying to do it using bindings, which I do know how to do.

When I did it with Events I could do it like :

private void MNewThread_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
FragmentTransaction transaction = FragmentManager.BeginTransaction();
Dialog_NewThread newThreadDialog = new Dialog_NewThread();
newThreadDialog.Show(transaction, "dialog fragment");

       // newThreadDialog.mOnSubmit += NewThreadDialog_mOnSubmit;

and I'm trying to do something like

public ICommand NewThreadCommand { get; set; }

    public CommunityViewModel()  // This is the constructor 
        NewThreadCommand = new MvxCommand(() =>
        //  Code to open the DialogFragment


Are there any simple solutions to this?

Thanks in advance
