Please excuse me for the misdirection. The code is applicable for WP8. For Windows Phone 8.1 you need to do the following:
- Modify the template for RadDataBoundListBox and set IsLightDimissEnabled=false to its PART_ItemReorderPopup. This way you can end reorder mode only explicitly
- In order to close the reorder mode you need to set Popup isOpen to false.
I have prepared sample project demonstrating how to achieve this.
