I'm pretty sure you could build it yourself based on the… post. The code's there, should be easy enough building a sandboxed solution based on it. – tarjeieo Feb 24 '12 at 8:51

Here is a SharePoint document library tree viewer that works very well, also has custom search box to search quickly for users,

Worth mentioning that this is a commercial product. – SPDoctor Feb 4 '13 at 9:11

Easy way to show treeview control in the navigation is to enable treeview and disable quick launch. You can go to site settings-->treeview under look and feel to do this.

hi, tks for the reply, but your answer doesn't suit my question. please read my question, I need to show document files, like the sample web part i provided, but it doesn't support sp online – hala Jan 26 '12 at 3:33
can u edit your sites using Sharepoint designer? – naijacoder Jan 27 '12 at 4:02
indeed, i'm using sp designer right now, but i couldn't find any datasource that sp online provides to get document library and its files. Liked I said, only document library folders is provided as datasource – hala Feb 1 '12 at 5:15

hi, tks for the reply, could you provide me a bit more detail about relative datasource or where I can get it? sp online is more restricted than sp, so many datasource is not accessible.. btw, liked i said, the bamboo or redsun web part only supports sp, not sp online – hala Jan 26 '12 at 3:32
