In Q1 2013 the Server-side OnClick event handler is not called and Client-side validation is not performed when ValidationGroup is set for a RadButton. The scenarios are as follows:
- The Server-side OnClick event is not triggered by a RadButton when it is used on a master page and the button's ValidationGroup property is set. This behaviour is observed under Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari, but not in FireFox and Opera. If, however, the RadAjaxManager is used in the master page the issue is observed in all browsers.

- Client-side ASP.NET validation is not executed when it is initiated by a RadButton and its ValidationGroup property is set. The unexpected behaviour is observed under FireFox and Opera. (Link to feedback portal).

This is a common setup that will cause the problems described above:
