Hello, Ahmed, 

Thank you for writing.  

In order to populate RadDropDownList with data you have two approaches:

1. Add the items programmatically to the Items collection: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/dropdown-listcontrol-and-checkeddropdownlist/dropdownlist/populating-with-data/adding-items-programmatically

2. Bind RadDropDownList: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/dropdown-listcontrol-and-checkeddropdownlist/dropdownlist/populating-with-data/data-binding

You can also refer to our Demo application >> DropDown & List >> DropDownList >> DataBinding example. The Demo application can be found in the installation folder of the suite. 
  
I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help. 
 
 Regards,
Dess
