quintagroup.z3cform.captcha allows adding captcha to z3c.form. As a result such forms are prevented from automatic submit. Captcha field for z3cform is based on quintagroup.captcha.core package.


Add quintagroup.z3cform.captcha to your buildout eggs and zcml area:

    eggs =
    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =

Re-run your buildout, e.g. with the following command:

    $ ./bin/buildout

This package does not require installation in Plone.

Captchas in a z3c form

Using quintagroup.z3cform.captcha in a z3c.form form is simple. Just add a Captcha field to your schema, use CaptchaWidgetFactory widget factory for this field and away you go:

    >>> from zope.interface import Interface
    >>> from z3c.form import form, field
    >>> from quintagroup.z3cform.captcha import Captcha
    >>> from quintagroup.z3cform.captcha import CaptchaWidgetFactory

Now define form schema with Captch field

    >>> class ICaptchaSchema(Interface):
    ...     captcha = Captcha(
    ...         title=_(u'Type the code'),
    ...         description=_(u'Type the code from the picture shown below.'))

And set proper widget factory for the captcha field

    >>>  class CaptchaForm(form.Form):
    ...      fields = field.Fields(ICaptchaSchema)
    ...      fields['captcha'].widgetFactory = CaptchaWidgetFactory

and z3c.form will take care of the rest. The widget associated with this field will render the captcha and verify the use input automatically.
