I am trying to select multiple features in a feature layer by using "hold 'ctrl' button and mouse click event". I am using ArcGIS JS API 3.x.

I am creating the US State boundary by using FeatureCollection, [Able to display the boundary on map] I have to select multiple states by mouse click while holding 'ctrl' or 'alt' key.

var featureLayer = new esri.layers.FeatureLayer(featureCollection, {
    id: stateLayer,
    opacity: 0.30,
    visible: true,
    infoTemplate: infoTemplate
});
g_esri.map.addLayer(featureLayer);
featureLayer.on("click", onBoundaryClick);

function onBoundaryClick(evt) {
    var g = evt.graphic;
    g_esri.map.infoWindow.setContent(g.getContent());
    g_esri.map.infoWindow.show(evt.screenPoint, g_esri.map.getInfoWindowAnchor(evt.screenPoint));
    formatInfotemplate(false, g);
}

I tried to follow some of the below links, 

a. https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-api-for-javascript/selecting-multiple-features-with-graphics/m-...

b. https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-api-for-javascript/select-multiple-features-by-mouse-clicks/td-...

But couldn't able to get through, 

Any help welcome
