ASP.net Wizard Validation Groups

I am utilizing a wizard for a registration process.  Each step has a validation group.  When looking at the page, it shows the required fields, however, when clicking on "Next" in the wizard, it does not stop the process until the required fields are filled in.  How do I check the validation group for a step when clicking the "Next button?"  

I tried using the UserWizard_NextButtonClick event, but it did not seem to work.
protected void UserWizard_NextButtonClick(object sender, WizardNavigationEventArgs e)
    {
 
 
        if (UserWizard.WizardSteps[e.CurrentStepIndex].ID == "PersonalInfo")
        {
 
            GetValidators("Personal");
        }
}

This helped for StartNavigationTemplate and One of the StepNavigationTemplates.  I have several steps in the wizard and each one has its own validation group.  How do I distinguish the steps?

Here is what I now have:

<StartNavigationTemplate>
<asp:Button ID="btnPrevious" runat="server" Text="Previous" CommandName="MovePrevious" />
<asp:Button ID ="btnNext" runat="server" Text="Next Step" CommandName="MoveNext" CausesValidation="true" ValidationGroup="Personal" />
</StartNavigationTemplate>
<StepNavigationTemplate>
<asp:Button ID="btnPrevious" runat="server" Text="Previous" CommandName="MovePrevious" />
<asp:Button ID ="btnNext" runat="server" Text="Next Step" CommandName="MoveNext" CausesValidation="true" ValidationGroup="Military" />

</StepNavigationTemplate>

Ok.  I think I got it.  I used the following in the code behind and it seemed to work.

if (UserWizard.WizardSteps[e.CurrentStepIndex].ID == "MoreInfo")
        {

            Page.Validate("More");
        }
        if (UserWizard.WizardSteps[e.CurrentStepIndex].ID == "Experience")
        {

            Page.Validate("Experience");
        }
        if (UserWizard.WizardSteps[e.CurrentStepIndex].ID == "MilED")
        {

            Page.Validate("MilEd");
        }
        if (!Page.IsValid)
        {
            e.Cancel = true;
        }

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
