CCaptcha renders a CAPTCHA image element.

CCaptcha is used together with CCaptchaAction to provide CAPTCHA - a way of preventing site spam.

The image element rendered by CCaptcha will display a CAPTCHA image generated by an action of class CCaptchaAction belonging to the current controller. By default, the action ID should be 'captcha', which can be changed by setting captchaAction.

CCaptcha may also render a button next to the CAPTCHA image. Clicking on the button will change the CAPTCHA image to be a new one in an AJAX way.

Since version 1.0.8, if clickableImage is set true, clicking on the CAPTCHA image will refresh the CAPTCHA.

A CCaptchaValidator may be used to validate that the user enters a verification code matching the code displayed in the CAPTCHA image.
