Customvalidator and repeater

Part of this works. I have a repeater with a radiobutton and a textbox. If radiobutton is "YES", user has to enter something in the textbox.

I added a CustomValidator and OnServerValidate="test" with ControlToValidate="rbQuestions". I have a server side event for this as well.

For the textbox, i added a RequiredFieldValidator and disabled it.

In the OnServervaidate, I check the Radiobutton value = "Y". So far it all works

But now, when the radiobutton is YES, i dont know how to check for the textbox not being empty. I did below but nothing gets validated.

My repeater and event code are below:
protected void test(Object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)

    {

        if (args.Value == "Y") //this reads the radiobutton value

        {



            foreach (RepeaterItem item in rpQuestions.Items)

            {

                

                RadioButtonList rbQuestion = (RadioButtonList)item.FindControl("rbQuestions");

                RequiredFieldValidator rfv = (RequiredFieldValidator) item.FindControl("rfvExplain");

                



                    //for (int i = 0; i <= rbQuestion.Items.Count - 1; i++)

                    //{

                    //    if (rbQuestion.Items[i].Value == "Y") //.SelectedItem.

                            rfv.Enabled = true;



                    //    else

                    //        rfv.Enabled = false;

                    //}

            }

        }

    }

Try this:
protected void test(Object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
    {
        if (args.Value == "Y") //this reads the radiobutton value
        {

            foreach (RepeaterItem item in rpQuestions.Items)
            {
                
                RadioButtonList rbQuestion = (RadioButtonList)item.FindControl("rbQuestions");
                RequiredFieldValidator rfv = (RequiredFieldValidator) item.FindControl("rfvExplain");
                
                if(rbQuestion != null)
                {
                   if (rbQuestion.SelectedValue == "Y")
                            rfv.Enabled = true;
                       else
                           rfv.Enabled = false;
