Hi all
I am having trouble adding the recaptcha spam protection to my form...
It works perfectly on my UserDefinedForm but it is not showing up in any php forms that I create
The code is as follow
//PHP form spam protection added

$form = new Form($this->owner, 'EnquiryForm', $fields, $actions, $validator);

How i added the Recaptcha in mysite/_Config/config.yml
  default_spam_protector: RecaptchaProtector
  public_api_key: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
  private_api_key: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

The strange thing is if I use Math Spam protection it shows up but this does not
Can anyone help me with this problem?

I can not see any issues with the code.
The 2 things I would check is that the relevant spam protection module is installed

I would also try a dev/build?flush=all as well

Thanks for the advice Kirk
It turns out that the code was right
I had 2 forms on one page and that duplicated the keys which made the code break
