how to validate a user chose at least one checkbox


how to validate a user chose at least one checkbox  using -'asp.net,.net,validation,checkbox,checkboxlist'

I've got a checkbox group control that I want to require the user to check at least ONE box, it does not matter if they check every single one, or 3, or even just one.

In the spirit of asp.net's validation controls can I use to enforce this. I'm also using the Ajax validation extender, so it would be nice if it could look like other controls, and not some cheesy server validate method in the codebehind.

<asp:CheckBoxList RepeatDirection="Horizontal" RepeatLayout="Table" RepeatColumns="3" ID="ckBoxListReasons" runat="server">
    <asp:ListItem Text="Preliminary Construction" Value="prelim_construction" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Final Construction" Value="final_construction" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Construction Alteration" Value="construction_alteration" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Remodel" Value="remodel" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Color" Value="color" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Brick" Value="brick" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Exterior Lighting" Value="exterior_lighting" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Deck/Patio/Flatwork" Value="deck_patio_flatwork" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Fence/Screening" Value="fence_screening" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Landscape - Front" Value="landscape_front" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Landscape - Side/Rear" Value="landscape_side_rear" />
    <asp:ListItem Text="Other" Value="other" />
</asp:CheckBoxList>
