Retrieving UniqueID from TreeView node on click

When I build a TreeViewModel in my controller, I set each TreeNodeItem's UniqueID to a value that will help me identify what item has been clicked on in the tree view. If I expand a node, I can see that the correct UniqueID value is picked up by the ClientSideOnNodeExpand handler. However, if I just click on a node (without expanding), I don't get the UniqueID, I just get the text of the item. I've tried changing the ClientSideOnNodeClick handler to get the unique Id but not sure how to do this. Here's what I've got in that handler:

function ClientSideNodeClick(sender) {

$('#EventLog').val($('#EventLog').val() + sender.nodeText + " Node is Selected" + "\n");
sender._handled = true;

The handler for expand looks similar (except it uses 'args' instead of 'sender' as the parameter name:

function ClientsideExpand(args) {

$('#EventLog').val($('#EventLog').val() + args.nodeText + " Node is Expanded" + "\n");
args._handled = true;

Why do I get different results from these two events? I want to get the UniqueID in both cases.
