Automatically select the default feature in TemplatePicker ARCGIS Javascript

Question asked by on Jan 19, 2015

I am using this example to implement the editing on my map.

Editing Without Widget ARCGIS Javascript

The code employs a templatepicker which uses the layers on the map to show the features which can be selected and hence editing can be done on those features.

            templatePicker = new TemplatePicker({ featureLayers: layers, rows: "auto", columns: 2, grouping: true, style: "height: auto; overflow: auto;" }, "templatePickerDiv");

However, you have to select a feature yourself before starting to edit it. After selection, the selected feature is fetched as

selectedTemplate = templatePicker.getSelected();

This selectedTemplate is then selected to put the points on the map.

selectedTemplate.featureLayer.applyEdits([newGraphic], null, null);

The problem is, I want to select the default or first feature in the templatePicker automatically as it loads. I tried finding if TemplatePicker has any method to select any feature but I couldnt. Is there any way that I could do that?
