1) check this
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/511439/custom-date-format-with-jquery-validation-plugin

the reg-ex format would be
\d{2}/\d{2}\\d{4}

2) similarly the reg-ex for US phone number will be
\d{3}\-\d{3}\-\d{4}
check this also
http://docs.jquery.com/Plugins/Validation/CustomMethods/phoneUS

3) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/277589/validation-of-radio-button-group-using-jquery-validation-plugin
this will be a straightforward one

you need to add
radioButtonId : true,

in the rules

Hi gurvinder372,
I tested all of the above.  
1.  The date validation did not work at all.  In fact the example code contains date validation for an Australian Date format.  Also, this is not an working code.  Do you have any other suggestion?
2.  The phone# working fine.  Thank You.
3.  The RadioButton selection works when Html tag is used.  It doesn't work when ASP tags are used such as see the codes below.  Please provide me any other solution if you have.  

Thank you gurvinder372 for your help.

                                          <tr>
                                                <td align="center" colSpan="2"><asp:panel id="Panel1" runat="server"><FONT class="label">
                                                                  <asp:RadioButton id="rbUnitedStates" runat="server" TextAlign="Left" Text="United States" checked
                                                                        GroupName="Region"></asp:RadioButton>&nbsp;&nbsp;

Check this plugin : http://digitalbush.com/projects/masked-input-plugin/

>3.  The RadioButton selection works when Html tag is used.  It doesn't work when ASP tags are used such as see the codes below.  Please provide me any other solution if you have.

Put you radio button in a div with the id of the groupname (but you can put another id...) :

Here the div with id << Region >> :


<tr>
<td align="center" colspan="2">
    <asp:panel id="Panel1" runat="server">
            <div id="Region">
                <font class="label">
                <asp:RadioButton id="rbUnitedStates" runat="server" TextAlign="Left" Text="United States" GroupName="Region"></asp:RadioButton>&nbsp;&nbsp;
                <asp:RadioButton id="rbCanada" runat="server" TextAlign="Left" Text="Canada" GroupName="Region"></asp:RadioButton>&nbsp;&nbsp;
                </font>
            </div>
    </asp:panel>
</td>
</tr>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    function validateRBChecked(groupname) {
        var inputs = document.getElementById(groupname).getElementsByTagName("input");
        for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {

Hi leakim971, Thank you for your reply.  I tried your above code.  In my case it did not compile.  So, I modified the code little bit as below.  Still the Javascript code is not executed on Submit button click.  Please try to fix this code if possible.  Thank you very much for your help.

Hi leakim971,
Thank you for your help.  The code did not execute on my machince for some reason.  Now, I changed the code to execute the on submit rather than on click.  It is working now.  But, it is all your code only.  The 100% credit goes to you.  See the working code below.  Probably you can take a look the code at your leisure time.  Thank you very much for your help.

The submit buttons :
<asp:Button ID="mySubmit" runat="server" Text="Submit" OnClientClick="return validateRBChecked('Region')"  />

versus

<asp:button id="btnSend" onclick="btnSend_Click" runat="server" Text="Submit" tabIndex="36"
                        style="Z-INDEX: 103; LEFT: 144px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 88px"></asp:button>
