RadDropDownList: The SvgImage property is not available for the data items

One cannot set the SvgImage of the RadListDataItems.

Additionally, when ShowImageInEditorArea is true the SvgImage must be displayed in the editor area.

As a workaround I can suggest storing the RadSvgImage in the Tag property of the RadListDataItems:

for (int i = 1; i <= 3; i++)
    RadListDataItem item = new RadListDataItem(i.ToString());
    item.Tag = RadSvgImage.FromFile("1.svg");
Then to display the SvgImages in the visual items of the pop-up you can use the VisualItemFormatting event:
private void radDropDownList1_VisualListItemFormatting(object sender, VisualItemFormattingEventArgs args)
    args.VisualItem.SvgImage = (RadSvgImage)args.VisualItem.Data.Tag;
And to synchronize the editor area SvgImage with the selected item when ShowImageInEditorArea is true you can use the SelectedIndexChanged event:
private void RadDropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.Data.PositionChangedEventArgs e)
    if (this.radDropDownList1.SelectedItem != null)
        this.radDropDownList1.DropDownListElement.EditableElement.SvgImage = (RadSvgImage)this.radDropDownList1.SelectedItem.Tag;
        this.radDropDownList1.DropDownListElement.EditableElement.SvgImage = null;
