Disable popup when selecting graphic (4.x)

I've built an application that includes the out-of-the box Sketch Widget. I need to disable the popup for active operational layers when selecting graphics created with the widget (to delete them or use the move/reshape tools). As it is, when the user selects a graphic, it opens the popup for any active layers beneath, meaning they have to close or dock the graphic to get it out of the way before they can interact with the graphic.

I assume I need to get the mappoint based on a click event, check it against the graphic's geometry, and set enablePopup to false. Here's my stab at it (at least for polygon graphics):

map.on("click", function (evt) {
var g = tempGraphicsLayer.graphics;
for (var loopCnt = 0; loopCnt < g.length; loopCnt++) {



Console shows tempGraphicsLayer as undefined (therefore can't read property "contains").

Help is much appreciated! Thanks.

It seems like you're coding this from a 3.x perspective. In 4.x, the map doesn't have a click event, but the mapView does. Take a look at Maps and Views | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.12

At state start 

You disabled the popup with 

view.popup.autoOpenEnabled = false;

And at state -> complete and cancel (re-enabled the popup)

view.popup.autoOpenEnabled = true;
