    Can you not use the required field validator or others with the search box? It will not let me.

    Hi James Daresta,

    Please have a look into the sample code snippet to achieve your scenario.

    <telerik:RadSearchBox ID="RadSearchBox1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
    <asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1" runat="server" ErrorMessage="*" ValidationGroup="Group1"
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" Text="Validate" CausesValidation="true"

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function Validate(sender, args) {
            //check your condition and set  args.IsValid to true or false
            var searchbox = $find("<%=RadSearchBox1.ClientID %>");
            if (searchbox.get_text() == "")
                args.IsValid = false;

    Hope this will helps you.
