    Hello Abdallah,

    I would suggest using a CustomValidator and writing the javascript to validate the control. Like so:

    <asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1" runat="server" Display="Dynamic" ValidationGroup="Save"

    function ValidateRadComboBox(source, args){
        var combo = $find("RadComboBox1.ClientID");
        args.IsValid = combo.get_selectedIndex() > 0;

    That's pretty much it. You'll need to handle the server-side check for the CustomValidator by handling the OnServerValidate event.

    I hope that helps.

    Hey Abdallah,

    One thing that got me for a bit was that the RequiredFieldValidator works on the TEXT property of a RadComboBox, not on the Value property like a normal DropDownList.

    It might be that you just need to change the InitialValue to something that represents the textual value of the default item.

    Hope that helps,
