Highlighting a point feature based on a query without overriding style

Question asked by bgfield on Jan 8, 2014

I'm creating a simple map filled with point features of businesses.  Users can click on a point to get information on it, or click on the name of the business in a dGrid which fires a query and selects the appropriate feature.  If a user clicks a point on the map, the default light-blue box with tick marks surrounds the feature to highlight it.  If they click a business name, no highlight graphic is applied.  I got around this issue by setting a selection symbol; however, now if a user clicks a point on the map, both the default box with tick marks AND the selection symbol is added to the map; and if you click an item in the dGrid, only the highlight symbol is applied and it overrides the default style of the feature (which is a problem as the points are colored differently).  If I set the opacity of the fill-color to 0, only the light-blue outline shows up - no fill color at all (not even the fill color of the actual feature).  Try my code below to see an example of what's happening.

Ultimately I'd like to have the same selection symbol applied whether a user clicks a point on the map or selects an item from the dGrid.  And I definitely just want a highlight around the point - I'd like the fill color of the original feature to remain even when selected.  I'm sure this is something simple, but I'm not finding it!
