Zend_Captcha, an example without Zend_Form

Here is your example how to implement Zend_Captcha_Image without using Zend_Form.

In your action method:

public function indexAction()
{
//...
$captcha = new Zend_Captcha_Image();
$captcha->setImgDir(APPLICATION_PATH . '/../public/tmp/captcha/');
$captcha->setImgUrl($this->view->baseUrl('/tmp/captcha/'));
$captcha->setFont(APPLICATION_PATH . '/fonts/elephant.ttf');
$captcha->setWidth(350);
$captcha->setHeight(150);
$captcha->setWordlen(5);
$captcha->setFontSize(70);
$captcha->setLineNoiseLevel(3);
$captcha->generate();
$this->view->captcha = $captcha;   // giving captcha object to the view
//...
}

In the corresponding view render the captcha and add a hidden field with the captcha id:

<form>
<input id="captcha" type="text" name="captcha" />
<?php echo $this->captcha->render($this, null) ?>
<input type="hidden" name="cid" value="<?php echo $this->captcha->getId() ?>" >
</form>

Validating the input of the user after postback:

// ...
$capId = $_POST['cid'];
$capSession = new Zend_Session_Namespace('Zend_Form_Captcha_'.$capId);
if ($_POST['captcha']==$capSession->word)
{
  // input OK
}
else {
  // input NOK
}
// ...

Good luck!
