You will need to enable the AutoPostBack property to true when using the OnTextChanged server-side event handler. I've created a sample RadTreeList sample to demonstrate how you can achieve the first two requirements. As for the issue from the third point, you can place a temporary button before the wizard definition and see whether this will change something.
Hope this helps.
