I'm having a problem with Steve Orr's Captcha control. Iv'e followed all
the instructions. I'm using vs2005. First when I drag it onto the page it
gets a rendering error saying

After getting captcha success and submitting the page I get an explorer
error dialog saying " Validation of viewstate MAC faild. If this
applicationis hosted by a web farm........"

Can you imagine what might cause this?

As it turned out, the fix I used doesn't always work. I'll play with some
others but we really shouldn't have to be doing this to get a control to
work. Sometimes the "MAC" message still appears. Also I find there is no
causesvalidation property that I can set to false so it's not a very good
citizen on the page. Is there somewhere we can request enhancements and
fixes to Steve?

I was using another CAPTCHA control by Jeff Atwood but it just doesn't work
sometimes and sometimes it does.

Are you aware of any other controls?
thanks,
Gary

There's a whole mess of them, some with source code included so,
if you want to turn out a better implementation, you can :

For a view contrary to using CAPTCHA, see :

http://weblogs.asp.net/rhoward/archi...CHA_3F00_.aspx

Rob Howard is one of the most respected ASP.NET developers there is.
He helped *develop* ASP.NET, and is the driving force behind Community Server.
