the application is running in the https.

after the scuccessfull operation, the final result page will be displayed which is having both secure and non-secure items.
so when displaying this page, "web page containse both secure and non-secure items" the alert is coming in IE6.

i want to eliminate this through programming.
please advise.

I think (and not positive)

if you make everything on the page secure, that is the only way you can eliminate that warning.

The warning tells the user that there is something on the page that is not secure, so if that something is a form they can avoid putting their sensitive data in it. It's a browser security function to keep people "in the know" about what data they're putting out there.


When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

In addition, that dialog contains a "don't show this warning any more" checkbox so the end user can easily turn off that dialog. And in fact the user might have already turned the warning off before hitting your web page, so why exert a lot of effort for something that the user can easily control?
