ASP.NET Validators Support

#3 Which type of apps is the most useful to you?

As of R1 2017 RadioButtonList control can be integrated with the native ASP.NET RequiredFieldValidator.

As shown in this demo, you just need to put the needed validator control and set the ControlToValidate value to the ID of the RadioButtonList's ID.

<telerik:RadRadioButtonList runat="server" ID="Questionnaire" AutoPostBack="false">
        <telerik:ButtonListItem Text="Game apps (puzzles, charades, etc.)" Value="0" />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="QuestionnaireValidator" runat="server"
    ErrorMessage="..." />

This will validate the SelectedItem property of the RadioButtonList control on submit and return the appropriate validation result.
