i am creating a menu in the code behind and i have 2 functions for it 1)main menu()  function and 2)sub menu() function

my main menu function retorns value  "Menu1=new Array('Folder 1','0','',1,16,170);"

then my sub menu function starts and finds submenu for  - Folder 1
and returns value  "Menu1_1_1=new Array('folder3','2','',0,16,170);"  the submenu function continues next time if it finds submenu for folder2
and returns value  "Menu1_1=new Array('folder2','1','',1,16,170);Menu1_1_1=new Array('folder3','2','',0,16,170);"

my question is what should i write in my vb.net code behind page so that i can show these folder and subfolder in a vertical menu format.if i need to make an html table please give me the codes.
mine is an asp.net 2003 application.
Thanks

This is how I made a dynamic table from code behind .
private void MakeTable()
    {
            DataSet dsTypes=new DataSet();
                  DataSet dsSubCat=new DataSet();
                  DataSet dsSSubCat=new DataSet();
                  DataSet dsItems=new DataSet();
                  DataSet dsRate=new DataSet();
                  ArrayList arTypes=new ArrayList();
                  ArrayList arsubCat=new ArrayList ();
                  HtmlTableRow tr;
                  HtmlTableCell td;
                  HtmlImage img;
                  HtmlInputText inp;
                  HtmlInputHidden inpH;
                  int i=0;
                  int g=0;
                  int j=0;
                  int gr=0;
                  dsTypes=//Get Dataset
            foreach(DataRow drType in dsTypes.Tables[0].Rows)
                  {      
                        dsSubCat=//Get Dataset
                        arsubCat=//Get ArrayList
                        foreach(DataRow dr in dsSubCat.Tables[0].Rows)
                        {
                              
                              foreach(string strSubId in arsubCat)
                              {
                                    tr= new HtmlTableRow();
                                    td=new HtmlTableCell();

                                    td.ColSpan=5;
                                    td.Width="50%";
                                    td.Align="Left";
                                    td.InnerText=dr[2].ToString();
                                    td.Style.Add("font-family","BankGothic Md BT, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif");
                                    td.Style.Add("font-size","small");
                                    tr.Cells.Add(td);
                                    
                                    img= new HtmlImage();
                                    img.Src="../image.gif";
                                    img.Border=0;
                                    
                                    td=new HtmlTableCell();
                                    td.Align="Right";
                                    td.VAlign="Bottom";
                                    td.ColSpan=5;
                                    td.Controls.Add(img);

                                    tr.BgColor=drType[3].ToString();//Header Color
                                    tr.Cells.Add(td);
                                    tr.Height="25 px";
                              
                                    tblContainer.Rows.Add(tr);
                                    dsSSubCat=//Get Sub Dataset ..May be you can do some further looping
                                          
                                          
                    }
                    tblContainer.Rows.Add(tr);
                }
            }

Where tblContainer is a table in the aspx page with attribute "runat" set to "server" .
