    If you want to focus RadRating when you use it in combination with a CustomValidator, for example if the validation fails, you can try the following approach:
    1. Set the TabIndex property of the rating control so that it can be focused:
      <telerik:RadRating ID="RadRating1" runat="server" TabIndex="1">
    2. Modify the body of the ValidateRating handler in order to include retrieving of the HTML element of the rating and focusing it. The following example shows how to do so when the validation fails:
      function ValidateRating(source, args) {
          args.IsValid = (args.Value > 0);
          if (!args.IsValid) {
              $find("<%=RadRating1.ClientID %>").get_element().focus();
