Need a simple vb asp.net example for displaying the contents of a web server directory

I have an web server that is running on a private internal network.  I maintain the web site and would like to add a directory where certain users can ftp pdf documents.   I  am looking for a simple vb asp.net example to build a web page that when opened would dynamically create a sorted list of documents in this directory with hyperlinks to open them.

Hi,
Please place the tree view control on a webpage and check if the following code works

<asp:TreeView Id="MyTree"
                      PathSeparator = "|"
                      ExpandDepth="0"
                      runat="server" ImageSet="Arrows"
        AutoGenerateDataBindings="False">
            <SelectedNodeStyle Font-Underline="True"
                HorizontalPadding="0px" VerticalPadding="0px" ForeColor="#5555DD"></SelectedNodeStyle>
            <NodeStyle VerticalPadding="0px" Font-Names="Tahoma" Font-Size="10pt"
                HorizontalPadding="5px" ForeColor="#000000" NodeSpacing="0px"></NodeStyle>
            <ParentNodeStyle Font-Bold="False" />
            <HoverNodeStyle Font-Underline="True" ForeColor="#5555DD"></HoverNodeStyle>
         </asp:TreeView>
