HTML5 form validation before reCAPTCHA’s

You have to do it programmatically thanks to a new v2 grecaptcha method: grecaptcha.execute() so that recaptcha doesn’t replace the button’s default click event which was preventing the default HTML5 form validation.

The event path is:

  1. Submit button click event: browser built-in form validation
  2. Form submit event: call grecaptcha.execute()
  3. reCAPTCHA callback: submit the form
$('#form-contact').submit(function (event) {
    event.preventDefault();
    grecaptcha.reset();
    grecaptcha.execute();
  });

function formSubmit(response) {
  // submit the form which now includes a g-recaptcha-response input
}
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api.js"></script>
<form action="?">
  <div class="g-recaptcha" 
       data-sitekey="your-key"
       data-size="invisible"
       data-callback="formSubmit">
  </div>
  <button type="submit">Submit</button>
</form>
