WebBrowser and Https security prompt message

    Question

  • Hello ,

    i'am using WebBrowser with vb.net
    so when i access to web site https a message prompt saying
    this page contains some security & non security data
    do you want to show  non secure
    data ?
    yes or no or more info
    so what i need is to bypass this message with yes
    so when i navigate to a https site it will access to it with no prompt message

    Thanks

  • You can control this via the registry.

     

    See:-  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/182569

     

    The zone value you need to modify is 1609 however I would not recommend you modify this value for the internet zone.  Bear in mind that this will affect not only your embedded browser but also the standard IE browser as well.

    & AV will detect you accessing to the registry to modify some data so notifcation....

  • The browser's API for managing this sort of this is the Internet Zone Manager

     

    IInternetZoneManager:Tongue TiedetZoneActionPolicy would give you an API to modify the zone and policy ID I posted earlier.  However this still going modify the registry.

  • Hi Anthony,

    if i use this API do the user get notification about Modification via the registry ?
    like if we do it directly on the registry

    Thanks
