I would like to be able to create a toolbar for a list that contains a dropdown with the views for that list.  Everytime I change the view in the dropdown the list would reload with the data from the selected view.  Attached is a screenshot of a 2007 sharepoint site where we have this in place.  But im trying to do this in 2010.

We have some 2007 sharepoint users that would like the old way of doing it.  Is there a way to make 2010 behave in this way.  I personally dont mind it.  But would like to know what it would take to add a toolbar to a list much like the screenshot I have in my first post.  Wondering if it would involve custom programming in c# or perhaps another way.

Well, I guess you could customize the CSS that positions the view drop-down, but it would involve some quite dramatic changes to standard out of the box SharePoint functionality.

Users don't like change, but it will probably be much easier and much faster to just train them in the new way of doing things in SharePoint 2010. After all, the location of the View drop-down is not the only change in the user interface, what with the ribbon and all.
