Hello Darrell Sveistrup,
Currently there is no way to sort the items. Their position in the vertical list is determined by their "Position" property. It can be changed by the user by rearranging the items and currently cannot be set in code.
I have created a feature request for this, you can vote for it here:
the Telerik team
