    I have a https site, use radwindow to open another window on the same https site.

    On the main window I have the below code.

        function Sel_OnClientClose(sender, eventArgs) {
        top.location.href = top.location.href;         
    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="radWindowManager" runat="server" IconUrl="/img/radwindowicon.gif" Style="z-index: 7001">
                <telerik:RadWindow ID="wndSelectAccount" runat="server" Modal="true" KeepInScreenBounds="true" height="450px" Width="700px"   Animation="Fade"
                    AutoSizeBehaviors="Default" ShowContentDuringLoad="true" VisibleStatusbar="false"
                    NavigateUrl="/SelectAccount.aspx" OnClientClose="Sel_OnClientClose" />
    Everytime when I close the top rad window, we IE warning message  "contains both secure and nonsecure items... Do you want to display nonsecure item?"
    On the top window, I use alert(location.href) when window load, can see it is https also. Not sure why we got the warning message when both main and top window are https?

    Please help!!

    Hello J J,

    This probably stems from the request for the IconUrl, as it is a relative path. The reason for that is not a bug in the RadWindow control, but this is the framework itself - you will get the same output if you set a relative path to any other standard control. Indeed the problem is that the browser does not recognize that the image is coming from a secure location as well, hence the warning.

    Fortunately, there is an easy fix - to set the iconUrl property with the full Url, e.g.: IconUrl="https://mysite/img/radwindowicon.gif"

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
