Hi,

To make a radiobutton as cumpulsory, you need to set one group name for the radiobuttons. and you need to set the checked property to true for default selection

and do the textBox validations in client side and server side are as coded below. Have a look and implement in your project.
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
	function CheckVal() {

		var txtmobile = document.getElementById("<%=txtmobile.ClientID %>");
		var txtname = document.getElementById("<%=txtname.ClientID %>");

		// Mobile Number Validation
		if (txtmobile.value == "") {
			alert("Mobile number should not be empty!");
			txtmobile.focus();
			return false;
		}
		else if (isNaN(txtmobile.value)) {
			alert("Mobile number should be a number!");
			txtmobile.focus();
			return false;
		}

		// Name validation
		if (txtname.value == "") {
			alert("Name should not be empty!");
			txtname.focus();
			return false;
		}
	}
</script>


<table>
<tr>
	<td colspan="2">
		<asp:Label ID="lblValErr" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>
	</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td colspan="2">
		<asp:RadioButton ID="rbmale" runat="server" GroupName="rbtnGroup1" Checked="true" Text="Male" />
		&nbsp;&nbsp;
		<asp:RadioButton ID="rbfemale" runat="server" GroupName="rbtnGroup1" Text="Female" />
	</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td>
		Mobile:
	</td>
	<td>
		<asp:TextBox ID="txtmobile" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
	</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td>
		Name:
	</td>
	<td>
		<asp:TextBox ID="txtname" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
	</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td>
		<input id="btnClientVal" type="submit" value="Client Validation" onclick="javascript:return CheckVal();" />
	</td>
	<td>
		<asp:Button ID="btnServerVal" runat="server" Text="Server Validation" />
	</td>
</tr>
</table>

Protected Sub btnServerVal_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles btnServerVal.Click

	lblValErr.Text = ""
	Dim Err As Boolean = False

	If txtmobile.Text.Trim = "" Then
		lblValErr.Text = "Mobile number should not be empty!<br />"
		Err = True
	ElseIf Not IsNumeric(txtmobile.Text.Trim) Then
		lblValErr.Text += "Mobile number should be a number!<br />"
		Err = True
	End If

	If txtname.Text.Trim = "" Then
		lblValErr.Text += "Name should not be empty!<br />"
		Err = True
	End If

	If Err = True Then
		Exit Sub
	End If

	' Successful validation and do code further

Good. but you should have mentioned it in the question. Ok.

as you said, put those two radio button inside a group box. and set the checked property to true for any one radio button.

and the same validation condition code in my previous comment will work in window application also.
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click

	If txtmobile.Text.Trim = "" Then
		MsgBox("Mobile number should not be empty!")
		Exit Sub
	ElseIf Not IsNumeric(txtmobile.Text.Trim) Then
		MsgBox("Mobile number should be a number!")
		Exit Sub
	End If

	If txtname.Text.Trim = "" Then
		MsgBox("Name should not be empty!")
		Exit Sub
	End If

End Sub

1. For numeric textbox, add this function
Private Function TrapKey(ByVal KCode As String) As Boolean
    If (CDbl(KCode) >= 48 And CDbl(KCode) <= 57) Or {8, 46, 44, 127, 45}.Contains(CInt(KCode)) Then
        TrapKey = False
    Else
        TrapKey = True
    End If
End Function

Open in new window

The add this to the KeyPress event of the textbox
e.Handled = TrapKey(CStr(Asc(e.KeyChar)))

Open in new window

2. For the text validated textbox, add this to the KeyPress event of the textbox
e.Handled = If(IsNumeric(e.KeyChar), False, True)

For radio buttons, use a condition like

If rbMale.Checked = false And rbFemale.Checked = false then
   msgbox "Please specify gender"
End If
