Asynchronously trigger details view on click of last treeview node

I have two ajax update panels on my page.  Update panel A contains a treeview where the first nodes are populated during the init routine of the page and the subsequent two levels are populated on demand when they are expanded.  

Update panel B contains some text boxes, labels, etc.  What I want to do is when I click the link of the lowest child node I want to post back the update panel, go to the DB and get the record (details) that corresponds to the final child node I clicked and populate the controls in update panel B with the details.  I thought I might just do this through javascript forcing an update of the panel B but I can't seem to get it to work, and I can't figure out where to put the code to hit the DB and populate the text boxes.

Help is appreciated.

i feel Ajax Triggers can be helpful in this case. http://www.asp.net/Learn/ajax/tutorial-02-cs.aspx

In the updatePannel B : Put a trigger ,and and associate with the Last Node of ur tree.IF u r dynamically generating the nodes then also set the control id for the Trigger runtime to ur specified Tree Node.

On Clicking of Tree Node ,hit the DB as Normally ,fetch the data and populate the controls present in the Panel B.
<Triggers> <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="lnkNode" EventName="Click" /> </Triggers>
