    I'm using OLAP Pivot Grid with HTTPS protocol and  it gives a warning saying "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items" on IE8 for some specific scenarios. I have loaded the pivot grid in an iframe and wrapped with a RadAjaxPanel. I have attached a sample project and screenshot of the mentioned security warning (rename the extension of test_project.jpg as test_project.rar).

    Steps to reproduce :

    1) Deploy attached project and load main.aspx using https protocol.
    2)  Add a dimension attribute field to "ROW FIELDS" / "COLUMN FIELDS"
    3) Click on filter button of added attribute field 
    4) Apply any value or label filter (EX: Equal filter)
    5) Again click on filter button of added attribute field 
    6) Then you will be able to see the security warning.

    This warning only appear when both iframe and update panel is used with pivot grid and its a must to have both in my project. how can i fix this issue without removing any of those.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hello Yohan,

    The presented behavior is actually by design in IE.

    If a secure Web page uses frames and one or more of the frames does not load, either because you cancel the load or because the load request does not work, Internet Explorer generates the preceding error message.

    This issue occurs because Internet Explorer determines that the successfully loaded frames are in the Internet domain and the internally generated error frames are on the local computer, and therefore sets the current zone to mixed. This triggers a security error message that alerts you that the page contains secure and non-secure items.

    In this case, the error message does not indicate a security problem; the error message merely indicates that the page has not loaded all of the secure content fully.

    You could see the kb below for more information on this error:
