Click to download a map tile

I'm building an application where users can click on the map to download a map tile. I can see that the ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer has a getTileUrl() method, but has anyone got any idea about how I can identify a particular tile beneath a user's map click?


The Silverlight API has a TileLoading event, but I can't find anything similar in the ArcGIS Server API for JavaScript. My idea was to attach a click event handler to each tile as it loads, and then use getTileUrl(coords) to locate the required tile.


What would also be great to do is add a feature layer graticule to identify the individual tiles, but I can't figure out a good way to do this.


I would really appreciate any suggestions.
