Matching two email fields and verifying captcha on entry rather than on submit

Matching two email fields and verifying captcha on entry rather than on submit

I am trying to finish up a form and having difficulty finding the answer to 2 issues/

1. I would like to do a "simple" confirm email entry between to fields after the second email field is entered (onBlur?) and show the error message at that stage rather than on submit.

2. On the same line - I would like to check the captcha and security question after they are entered rather than waiting for the long form to complete so before submit

Any help greatly appreciated as I have spent hours searching for these specific issues without success.

Thanks

Starting to figure this out. There is Spry validation for confirming email fields match so that works to compare email addresses but second question re checking validity of captcha before posting form is inherently complicated it seems. need server side validation to securely validate captcha as client side (i.e. Spry) would be a security issue and could easily be bypassed.

I am trying to find a way that the user could verify humanity versus robot before completing entire form - maybe an ajax call to ask the server to validate?

Probably beyond the scope of this forum but never hurts to ask if there are any other approaches.

Thanks

AJAX could be used, but ultimately you would want server validation as well because client side javascript can always be disabled. We could help you with that in a premier support ticket if you were interested.
