Hello Cory Hudson,
You can find a sample demonstrating how to create databound templates programatically as an attachment. Keep in mind that your RadLsitBox should be bound to a DataSource, dynamic templates does not work with static data. (This means hardcoded items in the aspx page). Also this article
may come handy.
In concern with the help question - yes, since RadListBox is relatively new (from Q2) its help is not yet fully completed. We are doing our best to fill the gaps as soon as possible.
