I am completely new to JS and am trying to find a way to dim the esri basemap under my layers. So far the basemap is loaded/called like this: (I think)

map = new Map("map", {
        basemap: "satellite",
        center: [-117.719, 34.100],
        zoom: 14,

I have searched through the forums and JS API developers site trying different methods I am finding but either I am writing the code wrong or have not found the correct format to make this work.

Any suggestions?
