I am making something like mysmartprice menu in magento, can anybody point me to the resource or search term. I have UI read with me, i just need the correct loop or function to begin. I am familiar with magento theme making, i have made some themes for ecommerce website also, but for this sub-category and its sub-category i am bit confuse.

Any Help would be appreciated.

Here is the code to display all the categories in a select dropdown, you may have to make some modifications depending on what you need:

<select id="category" name="category">
  $rootCat = Mage::app()->getStore()->getRootCategoryId();
  $categories = explode(',',Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($rootCat)->getChildren());
  foreach($categories as $cat){ 
     $category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($cat);
   <option value="<?php echo $category->getId();?>"><?php echo $category->getName();?></option>
<?php } ?>
