I need to know how to do the following: The need is to be able to read the directory structure dynamically in JavaScript/VBScript and display it as a tree structure on the page. It should be like our Windows Explorer, where clicking on one directory, should display the extended list of its contents and so on. Pls reply asap. Thanks.

hope it helps. but im curious why would you do that? and is it server-side or client-side?

Commented:
It MUST be server side -- you have no way to show anything off the client system without their consent.
