Using CFDIRECTORY

OK, here is the issue.

I want to loop through my directory and create the following look (SEE BELOW), I will use "wwwroot" as my base folder. I think you get the poit.  I basilcally want to create a "windows explorer" type view (although just have them all expanded).  This stuff is so easy in .asp, but being new to coldfusion.  I am at a bit of a loss.

wwwroot (dir)
    - File1.cfm (file)
    - File2.cfm (file)
    - File3.cfm (file)
      FOLDER1 (dir)
        - File1.cfm (file)
        - File2.cfm (file)
        FOLDER1a (dir)
          - File1a.cfm (file)
      FOLDER2 (dir)
        - File2a.cfm(file)

<cfloop index="idx" from="1" to="#locSpacer#">
      <cfset strInset = #strInset# & '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;'>
</cfloop>

<cfdirectory action="list" directory="#path#" name="fileList" sort="type desc">
<cfloop query="fileList">
<cfif #type# is "dir" and #name# neq "." and #name# neq "..">
<cfoutput>#strInset#-#Name#<br></cfoutput>
<CF_dirRecursive dirPath="#attributes.dirPath#\#name#" spacer="#locSpacer#">
<cfelse>
<cfoutput>#strInset#-#Name# - #size#<br></cfoutput>
</cfif>
</cfloop>


and in the page that you want the directory list to appear

insert this line

<cf_dirRecursive dirPath="#expandPath('.')#" spacer="2">

the dirrecursive.cfm must be in the same directory as the page with the calling statement
