Sitecore 9 Forms :  Alphanumeric Captcha

Sitecore 9 Forms :  Alphanumeric Captcha As you know Recaptcha is not available on Sitecore 9.0.1 and Sitecore 9.0.2 forms, so I thought to create custom Google Recaptcha but my issue was Google Recaptcha was not working properly on Internet Explorer as it was asking 10 to 15 times to verify which is very frustrating, at the same time it was working for another browser so I thought to create custom Alphanumeric captcha as per client requirement. In previous blog, we have checked how to create Google reCaptcha field. Now we are going to create Alphanumeric Captcha using below steps: Create new viewmodel class AlphaNumericViewModel.cs [Serializable()]     public class AlphaNumericViewModel : StringInputViewModel     {         protected override void InitItemProperties(Item item)         {             base .InitItemProperties(item);         }     }   Create Controller AlphanumericCaptchaController.cs public class AlphanumericCaptchaController

Sitecore 9 Forms: Robot detection

Sitecore 9 Forms: Robot detection As you know Sitecore 9 does not provide “Update Contact details” out of box but Sitecore is providing code for that which you can find from here In my current project, I am using Sitecore 9.0.2 and using the same code which Sitecore is providing for Update Contact. Recently I faced an issue where the form is getting spammed.  After some investigation, I found IsRobot function which is a helper method of Sitecore.Analytics.Pipelines.ClassificationStrategy.ContactClassification class.  This helper methods take the contact classification as a parameter and return a Boolean value which indicates whether the contact is a robot or not. public static bool IsRobot(int classification); Below is a code of UpdateContact: namespace Sitecore.ExperienceForms.Samples.SubmitActions { /// <summary> /// Submit action for updating <see cref="PersonalInformation"/> and <see cref="EmailAddressList"/
