Hello,

I currently have a web registration form.  before a user is able to register, they have to enter a captcha and then they are redirected to the web form.  

I would like to actually implement the captcha in the form itself and I am having a little trouble figuring this out.

Thanks!

Thanks,

But how do I actually code it so that when the user enters the captcha, it processes the the form data that was input?  

currently when the user enters the info into the form, it inserts it into a database on our web server.

Did you read the article and try any of the code examples?  You may want to do that so that you can see how it works.

The CAPTCHA is a "gatekeeper."  

If the CAPTCHA test is failed, you would not do any updates to the data base.  Instead you might present the form again, storing the client input values in the HTML input controls so that the client does not have to re-enter all of the data.

If the CAPTCHA test is passed, your script would run the same code it runs now.
