How to call a button to work from JavaScript API file

I am trying to create a group of draw tools like point, freehandpolyline and freehandpolygon in a ESRI's JavaScript map template.  I set up three buttons in the index.html as the following:


<button id="point" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/Button"></button>


<button id="freehandpolyline" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/Button"></button>


<button id="freehandpolygon" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/Button"></button>



After that I tried to registered these buttons in a file called 'main.js' inside the js folder of the template.

var tb = new Draw(; registry.byId("point").on("click", function () { tb.activate(; }); 


But  it just can not call this  button at all.  The debug tools indicate that "cannot read property 'on' of undefined. Any hint would be helpful. Thanks!
