hi everyone i am trying to get validate captcha on my form but i would like validation to take place on the form without a change of state.

currently the page refreshes to display the error message and the page loses all form values and i can understand that this can be frustrating to users who have to retype the information.

how can i get the error message to display right below the captcha image area? this way the user can make the necessary corrections to their mistake without re-entering everything.

<?php session_start(); 
include_once ("resources/Connections/kite.php");
include_once $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/securimage/securimage.php';
$securimage = new Securimage();
?>

<div class="c13">
  <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
      <td width="69%" align="center"><p class="c6">New Account</p>
        <?php
$username = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['username']);
$email = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['email']);
$password = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['password']);
$password = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['password2']);

        //check if the form has been submitted

if(isset($_POST['submit'])){

    if ($securimage->check($_POST['captcha_code']) == false) {
  // the code was incorrect
  // you should handle the error so that the form processor doesn't continue

  // or you can use the following code if there is no validation or you do not know how
  echo "The security code entered was incorrect.<br /><br />";
  echo "Please go <a href='javascript:history.go(-1)'>back</a> and try again.";
}

else

    //success

    echo '<p class="c7">Thanks for signing up. We have just sent you an email at <b>'.$email.'</b>. Please click on the confirmation link within this message to complete registration.<br><img src="resources/img/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="20"><br><span class="c12">

You could either echo back all values (for example:

<input name="username" type="text" class="required" value="<?php echo $_POST['username']; ?>" />

), or you could move the validating to a seperate php file and call that with ajax.
