How can I incorporate the show if server behavior in an existing PHP script?

  Did you add the validate field to the jquery form submit? I'm afraid I'm getting a little lost about where it is failing and why at this point.

You can try adding debug code to the validation... but since you are using jquery for the form submit I'm not quite clear on how the server validation is going to work.

Maybe write the values when the server validation is run to see if they have the values you would expect:

$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE($_SESSION['captcha_Security_Code_1'] . "",$_POST['verify'] . "",true,1);

Thanks, Ray:

The validation seems to be fine as the values returned when I write the ($_SESSION['captcha_Security_Code_1'].":".$_POST['verify']); per your instructions are: w2hWd:12345, where the first value is the code displayed in the CAPTCHA graphic and the second is the value I entered. The problem seems to have to do with the way the alert is written to the page after the validation fails. See lines 87 - 95 of the contact.php page:

} else if (ValidatedField('contact_413','contact_413')) {
if((strpos((",".ValidatedField("contact_413","contact_413").","), "," . "1" . ",") !== false || "1" == "")) {
if (!(false)) {
echo '<div class="error_message">Attention! The CAPTCHA code you entered is incorrect.</div>';
//WAFV_Conditional contact.php contact_413(1:)

Looking at the other validations, for instance lines 84 - 86 show the correct alert if the CAPTCHA field is empty:

} else if (trim($verify) == '') {
echo '<div class="error_message">Attention! Please enter the CAPTCHA code.</div>';

Of course it's easy to check to see if the field is empty.

I look forward to your insight into this issue.
