How can I validate google reCAPTCHA v2 using javascript/jQuery?


I have a simple contact form in aspx. I want to validate the reCaptcha (client-side) before submitting the form. Please help.

Sample code:

    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default2.aspx.vb" Inherits="Default2" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Test Form</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
        <script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
        <script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.2/jquery-ui.js"></script>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css">
        <script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js" async defer></script>
        <script>
            $("#cmdSubmit").click(function () {
                //need to validate the captcha
            });
        </script> 
    </head>
    <body>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <label class="clsLabe">First Name<sup>*</sup></label><br />
            <input type="text" id="txtFName" name="txtFName" class="clsInput" /><br />
            <div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="my_key"></div>
            <img id="cmdSubmit" src="SubmitBtn.png" alt="Submit Form" style="cursor:pointer;" />
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>

I want to validate the captcha on cmdSubmit click.

Please help.

This Client side verification of reCaptcha - the following worked for me :

if reCaptcha is not validated on client side grecaptcha.getResponse(); returns null, else is returns a value other than null.

Javascript Code:

var response = grecaptcha.getResponse();

if(response.length == 0)
    //reCaptcha not verified

else
    //reCaptch verified

Use this to validate google captcha with simple javascript.

This code at the html body:

<div class="g-recaptcha" id="rcaptcha" style="margin-left: 90px;" data-sitekey="my_key"></div>
<span id="captcha" style="margin-left:100px;color:red" />

This code put at head section on call get_action(this) method form button:

function get_action(form) 
{
    var v = grecaptcha.getResponse();
    if(v.length == 0)
    {
        document.getElementById('captcha').innerHTML="You can't leave Captcha Code empty";
        return false;
    }
    else
    {
        document.getElementById('captcha').innerHTML="Captcha completed";
        return true; 
    }
}

Simplified Paul's answer:

Source:

<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js"></script>

HTML:

<div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="YOUR_KEY" data-callback="correctCaptcha"></div>

JS:

var correctCaptcha = function(response) {
        alert(response);
    };

If you render the Recaptcha on a callback

<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js?onload=onloadCallback&render=explicit" async defer></script>

using an empty DIV as a placeholder

<div id='html_element'></div>

then you can specify an optional function call on a successful CAPTCHA response

var onloadCallback = function() {
    grecaptcha.render('html_element', {
      'sitekey' : 'your_site_key',
      'callback' : correctCaptcha
    });
  };

The recaptcha response will then be sent to the 'correctCaptcha' function.

var correctCaptcha = function(response) {
    alert(response);
};

All of this was from the Google API notes :

Google Recaptcha v2 API Notes

I'm a bit unsure why you would want to do this. Normally you would send the g-recaptcha-response field along with your Private key to safely validate server-side. Unless you wanted to disable the submit button until the recaptcha was sucessful or such - in which case the above should work.

Hope this helps.

I used HarveyEV's solution but misread it and did it with jQuery validate instead of Bootstrap validator.

  <script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.validate/1.14.0/jquery.validate.min.js"></script>
  <script>
    $("#contactForm").validate({
      submitHandler: function (form) {
        var response = grecaptcha.getResponse();
        //recaptcha failed validation
        if (response.length == 0) {
          $('#recaptcha-error').show();
          return false;
        }
          //recaptcha passed validation
        else {
          $('#recaptcha-error').hide();
          return true;
        }
      }
    });
  </script>

you can render your recaptcha using following code

<div id="recapchaWidget" class="g-recaptcha"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
   var widId = "";
   var onloadCallback = function ()
   {
    widId = grecaptcha.render('recapchaWidget', {
    'sitekey':'Your Site Key'
            });
   };
 </script>

 <script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js?onload=onloadCallback&render=explicit" async defer></script>

Then you can validate your recaptcha by using "IsRecapchaValid()" method as follows.

 <script type="text/javascript">
     function IsRecapchaValid()
      {
      var res = grecaptcha.getResponse(widId);
      if (res == "" || res == undefined || res.length == 0)
         {
          return false;
         }
       return true;
      }
 </script>

I thought all of them were great but I had troubles actually getting them to work with javascript and c#. Here is what I did. Hope it helps someone else.

//put this at the top of the page
<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js"></script>

//put this under the script tag
<script>
var isCaptchaValid = false;
function doCaptchaValidate(source, args) {
    args.IsValid = isCaptchaValid;
}
var verifyCallback = function (response) {
    isCaptchaValid = true;
};
</script>

//retrieved from google and added callback
<div class="g-recaptcha" data-sitekey="sitekey" data-callback="verifyCallback">

//created a custom validator and added error message and ClientValidationFucntion
<asp:CustomValidator runat="server" ID="CustomValidator1" ValidationGroup="Initial" ErrorMessage="Captcha Required" ClientValidationFunction="doCaptchaValidate"/>

I used Palek's solution inside a Bootstrap validator and it works. I'd have added a comment to his but I don'y have the rep;). Simplified version:

        $('#form').validator().on('submit', function (e) {
           var response = grecaptcha.getResponse();
           //recaptcha failed validation
           if(response.length == 0) {
               e.preventDefault();
               $('#recaptcha-error').show();
           }
           //recaptcha passed validation
           else {
               $('#recaptcha-error').hide();
           }
           if (e.isDefaultPrevented()) {
              return false;
           } else {
              return true;
           }
       });

            console.log("Resp" + v);
            if (v == '') {
                document.getElementById('captcha').innerHTML = "You can't leave Captcha Code empty";
                return false;
            }
            else {
                document.getElementById('captcha').innerHTML = "Captcha completed";
                return true;
            }
        }
    </script>

   <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server"
       Text="Button" />
    <div id="captcha"></div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

It will work as expected.


The Google reCAPTCHA version 2 ASP.Net allows validating the Captcha response on the client side using its Callback functions. In this example, the Google new reCAPTCHA will be validated using ASP.Net RequiredField Validator.

<script type="text/javascript">
    var onloadCallback = function () {
        grecaptcha.render('dvCaptcha', {
            'sitekey': '<%=ReCaptcha_Key %>',
            'callback': function (response) {
                $.ajax({
                    type: "POST",
                    url: "Demo.aspx/VerifyCaptcha",
                    data: "{response: '" + response + "'}",
                    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                    dataType: "json",
                    success: function (r) {
                        var captchaResponse = jQuery.parseJSON(r.d);
                        if (captchaResponse.success) {
                            $("[id*=txtCaptcha]").val(captchaResponse.success);
                            $("[id*=rfvCaptcha]").hide();
                        } else {
                            $("[id*=txtCaptcha]").val("");
                            $("[id*=rfvCaptcha]").show();
                            var error = captchaResponse["error-codes"][0];
                            $("[id*=rfvCaptcha]").html("RECaptcha error. " + error);
                        }
                    }
                });
            }
        });
    };
</script>


    <asp:TextBox ID="txtCaptcha" runat="server" Style="display: none" />

You can simply check on client side using grecaptcha.getResponse() method

          var rcres = grecaptcha.getResponse();
          if(rcres.length){
            grecaptcha.reset();
            showHideMsg("Form Submitted!","success");
          }else{
            showHideMsg("Please verify reCAPTCHA","error");
          }

if (typeof grecaptcha !== 'undefined' && $("#dvCaptcha").length > 0 && $("#dvCaptcha").html() == "") {
                dvcontainer = grecaptcha.render('dvCaptcha', {
                    'sitekey': ReCaptchSiteKey,
                    'expired-callback' :function (response){
                        recaptch.reset();
                        c_responce = null;
                    },
                    'callback': function (response) {
                        $("[id*=txtCaptcha]").val(c_responce);
                        $("[id*=rfvCaptcha]").hide();
                        c_responce = response;

                    }
                });
            }
            
            function callonanybuttonClick(){
             
                if (c_responce == null) {
                    $("[id*=txtCaptcha]").val("");
                    $("[id*=rfvCaptcha]").show();

                    return false;
                }
                else {
                    $("[id*=txtCaptcha]").val(c_responce);
                    $("[id*=rfvCaptcha]").hide();
                    return true;
                }
            
}
<div id="dvCaptcha" class="captchdiv"></div>
    <asp:TextBox ID="txtCaptcha" runat="server" Style="display: none" />
    <label id="rfvCaptcha" style="color:red;display:none;font-weight:normal;">Captcha validation is required.</label>

Captcha validation is required.
