RadListBox can perform transfer, delete and reorder operations and update the underlying datasource control.

To enable automatic updates you should set the AllowAutomaticUpdates property to true. Automatic updates require postback so any of the AutoPostBackOnReorder/AutoPostBackOnTransfer/AutoPostBackOnDelete properties should be also set to true.
