Hello. I am trying to combine an accordion panel and a tree view to make a dynamic navigation panel for a web page. The biggest problem is that users can add folders at any time, so the menu needs to be stored in a session variable. I can't find any way
to point a tree view directly to a directory structure, so I'm looking at java and css. I can get the effects that I want if I can just get the directory structure into an unordered list format. I basically need to start at a given level, then check all subfolders.
Any subfolders that have subfolders of their own will be added to a string along with the correct list item html and then do it all over again. Where I'm hitting a wall is the recursive listings. I can code in a set number of levels, each with it's own variables,
but that's not the right way to do it. Can anyone point me to the best way to do this?

So, essentially this is what I have. I need to figure out how to make this recursive. I tried using a stack, but the levels come out wrong (all of hte folders in the top level first, then all of the folders i nthe second level of the first folder etc.).
Dim rf As String = "D:\common"
Dim FSO As Object = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim cf0, sfs0, sf0, f0, cf1, sfs1, sf1, f1 As Object
'begin new level
cf0 = FSO.GetFolder(rf)
sfs0 = cf0.subfolders
For Each sf0 In sfs0
f0 = sf0.subfolders
If f0.count > 0 Then
Session("menu") += "<li><a href='default2.aspx?loc=" & Server.UrlEncode(sf0.name) & "' target='frame'>" & sf0.name & "(0)</a>"
'begin new level
cf1 = FSO.GetFolder(sf0)
sfs1 = cf1.subfolders
Session("menu") += "<ul>"
For Each sf1 In sfs1
f1 = sf1.subfolders
If f1.count > 0 Then
'repeat levels of code here
Session("menu") += "</ul></li> "

For lack of a better way, I just hard coded multiple levels like so...
Dim CurrentFolder As Object = FSO.GetFolder(FullPath)
Dim L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, L6, L7, L8, L9, L10, L11 As Object
Dim Path As String
Dim menu As String
L1 = CurrentFolder.subfolders
For Each a In L1
L2 = a.subfolders
Path = Server.UrlEncode(a.name)
If L2.count > 0 Then
For Each b In L2
L3 = b.subfolders
Path = Server.UrlEncode(a.name & "\" & b.name)
If L3.count > 0 Then
