Simple Captcha Using C#

Abstract

This will show you how to create a simple captcha which you can play with to rotate add more effect etc.

I was trying to find a solution to block spammers adding data to our database using C#. This is the quick solution I found.
First create an image tag in the webform that has the submit form.
<IMG height="30" alt="" src="Turing.aspx" width="80">
As you see the source for the picture will be a file called "Turing.aspx".
Later create the webform "Turing.aspx" with the code below

public class Turing1 : System.Web.UI.Page {
private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
Bitmap objBMP =new System.Drawing.Bitmap(60,20);
Graphics objGraphics = System.Drawing.Graphics.FromImage(objBMP);
objGraphics.Clear(Color.Green);
objGraphics.TextRenderingHint = TextRenderingHint.AntiAlias;
//' Configure font to use for text
Font objFont = new Font("Arial", 8, FontStyle.Bold);
string randomStr="";
int[] myIntArray = new int[5] ;
int x;
//That is to create the random # and add it to our string
Random autoRand = new Random();
for (x=0;x<5;x++)
{ myIntArray[x] = System.Convert.ToInt32 (autoRand.Next(0,9));
randomStr+= (myIntArray[x].ToString ());
}
//This is to add the string to session cookie, to be compared later
Session.Add("randomStr",randomStr);
//' Write out the text
objGraphics.DrawString(randomStr, objFont, Brushes.White, 3, 3);
//' Set the content type and return the image
Response.ContentType = "image/GIF";
objBMP.Save(Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Gif);
objFont.Dispose();
objGraphics.Dispose();
objBMP.Dispose(); }
}
And this is the code for the submit button on the main form
private void btnSubmit_ServerClick(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
if (Page.IsValid && (txtTuring.Value.ToString () ==Session["randomStr"].ToString ()))
{ // The Code to insert data } else
{
Label1.Text ="Please enter info correctly";
} }
4) Finally make sure you add the related System libraries,
using System.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Text;
using System.Drawing.Imaging;
in front of the class and this is it.
Hope this helps. Regards

  • On-demand Event Event Date: September 10, 2014 Modern mobile applications connect systems-of-engagement (mobile apps) with systems-of-record (traditional IT) to deliver new and innovative business value. But the lifecycle for development of mobile apps is also new and different. Emerging trends in mobile development call for faster delivery of incremental features, coupled with feedback from the users of the app "in the wild." This loop of continuous delivery and continuous feedback is how the best mobile …

  • One of the most foolproof ways for an online system to confirm, "Is it really you?" is by adding two-factor authentication. Modern two-factor solutions have evolved to support new, complex technology models that change how we use data, including cloud computing and bring-your-own-device (BYOD). However, not all two-factor authentication solutions are created equal. This guide walks through some of the key area of differentiation between two-factor authentication solutions and provides some concrete criteria …
