You cannot access the desired object on ItemCreated as the item is not bound at that time. You can try the ItemDataBound event instead. There try the following code:
sender, RadListViewItemEventArgs e)
MyCustomObject obj = e.Item.DataItem
Please replace the MyCustomObject with the name of your custo Object.
