The problem now is, how do I get a node from the org chart? I have seen various methods like, getChild, getChildAt, getChildByName, but none of them seem to get the node I'm looking for. Each node has a unique attribute of DistID. I don't know how to use that or if I can to get the node I"m looking for. If I can do that, then I will have solved my problem and have the tree load as the results come back from my web service.
