    Hi Maurice,

    You cannot access the desired object on ItemCreated as the item is not bound at that time. You can try the ItemDataBound event instead. There try the following code:

    protected void RadListView1_ItemDataBound(object sender, RadListViewItemEventArgs e)
        if(e.Item is RadListViewDataItem)
            MyCustomObject obj = e.Item.DataItem as MyCustomObject;

    Please replace the MyCustomObject with the name of your custo Object.

    Best wishes,
