Hiding Captcha Until Submit it Clicked?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to only show the captcha once submit is clicked?

    I have a gravity form and the captcha really makes things look ugly and sometimes deters people from filling out the form as they can be tricky sometimes.

    Is there anyway of spawning this in a tool tip? or using some sort of conditional logic to hide it until submit is clicked where they then fill it in?

  2. You would not be able to use conditional logic like that because the conditional logic is all processed before the form is submitted. You might have to create a bit of JavaScript to:

    1. hide the real submit button
    2. hide the reCAPTCHA
    3. display a fake submit button
    4. fake submit button reveals the reCAPTCHA and real submit button
    5. after reCAPTCHA is filled out, form is submitted.

    I have no idea if that would work or what would happen on submission if there were a validation error, but the conditional logic in Gravity Forms won't do this for you.
