update graphic symbol after directly updating svg shape

Discussion created by btfou on Nov 19, 2013
I'm working on some classes and widgets for updating graphic symbols and have found it much easier/less code to update the svg shapes directly instead of creating and setting  esri/symbols. The problem is that graphic.symbol does not update when using this approach. I don't see any method, public or private, to update graphic.symbol from the svg.

Does anyone know of some way to accomplish this within the api-as-is before I write a class extension to do so?
