Set Feature Layer Selection Symbol

Question asked by GilvarryCW on Mar 11, 2013
Latest reply on Mar 12, 2013 by GilvarryCW

I'm trying to add functionality to select a group of parcels as laid out in this example, and display queried information for those parcels in a popup info window. I've got it displaying the queried data in an infowindow correctly, and it highlights the correct parcel for the info being displayed, but I'm having issues highlighting every selected parcel. In the above example it sets the selection symbol with setSelectionSymbol(), but for whatever reason this isn't working for me, and I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing wrong.

I've included the parts of my code that are relevant to my problem, including parts that deal with toggling the parcel layer on and off in a legend.

Thank you for any help! If i can help clarify anything at all let me know!
