Note that the desired functionality could be achieved the same way you will do this with asp TextBox and DropDown control. There is no specificity in Telerik controls that may lead to any different actions.
Additionally I would suggest you to use the TextBox onkeypress event and use some specific Web Service or Page Method for the validation you need.
