What would be best way to handle how clicking on something changes a content pane...

I have the following page, that has a column across the top for navigation, a column on the left side for a rich:tree and the rest is a content pane. I need the content pane to change depending on what is clicked on in the rich:tree from the tree on the left side.

Any ideas on the best way to do this, because I cant just make pages, it has to be done dynamically because there will be different nodes in the tree all the time. Here is the page, there is a ui:define tag called "content" that is blank, and that is what I need to populate with content when someone clicks on the rich:Tree nodes (its at the very bottom):

I mean Im sure within each rich:tree tag Ill need to use the onclick attribute or something like that, but aside from that Im unsure what to do with it

Matt:

I do not know anything about RichFaces so please pardon my ignorance but from your use case, I think PartialTriggers is what you are looking for.

I use Apache Trinidad components which has built-in AJAX support and it provides two attributes: autoSubmit and partialTriggers to accomplish repainting a component based on the response received.

I am certain a4j has attributes/tags that will meet your requirements.

Best,
Anil.
