Hello Divyesh Chapaneri,

Thank you for the question.

You can use the ItemDataBound event for your scenario. Although the linked help article is in the RadComboBox section, it is also valid for RadListBox. The code snippet in your case will be similar to the shown below:
public Form1()  
{  
    InitializeComponent();  
 
    this.radListBox1.ItemDataBound += new Telerik.WinControls.UI.ItemDataBoundEventHandler(radListBox1_ItemDataBound);  
    this.radListBox1.DataSource = this.customersBindingSource;  
    this.radListBox1.DisplayMember = "ContactName";  
    this.radListBox1.ValueMember = "CustomerID";  
}  
 
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
{  
    // TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'nwindDataSet.Customers' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.  
    this.customersTableAdapter.Fill(this.nwindDataSet.Customers);  
}  
 
void radListBox1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.ItemDataBoundEventArgs e)  
{  
    RadListBoxItem item = e.DataBoundItem as RadListBoxItem;  
    item.DescriptionText = ((DataRowView)e.DataItem).Row["ContactTitle"].ToString();
