Generally, you should be able to perform data operations by dragging the columns of RadGridView
irrelevant to whether they are added at runtime or not. Can you please check out your application for Binding errors? They can be observed in the output window in Visual Studio when the project is run in debug mode.
I have also attached a sample project demonstrating that the control behaves as expected in such scenarios.
