Putting up Textbox for user log in

Hello,
I am not that familiar with Javascript, so hopefully all you experts out there will have an answer on this easy question...I have a JSP page that will validate users based on their certificate if they come in on the https address. If they come in on http, though, I would like to pop up a Javascript input box, get their user id and password, validate it (I've got this part) and send them on to the page. What Javascript object will do this for me?
thanks...

What Javascript object will do this for me?


That depends on what "this" is. You've described a highly complex mechanism. Obviously there's no JS object that does all that automatically. What part are you looking for? The dialog box?

Why don;t you do the classic login page or just redirect them from http to the https where the login should happen?
