I am calling a geoprocessing service in a web app. The geoprocessing service has one parameter (a feature set). But I am not sure how to find the parameter in the javascript code to send it to the geoprocessing since I am using an editor widget to first create the polygon and then run the geoprocessing service. Can you guys take a look at my code and tell me how I reference a feature set from the editor widget results? Thank you!

    dom, on

    // snapping is enabled for this sample - change the tooltip to reflect this
    jsapiBundle.toolbars.draw.start = jsapiBundle.toolbars.draw.start +  "<br>Press <b>ALT</b> to enable snapping";

This isn't at all easy to follow. The code you've included looks like a partial snapshot of a much larger code base, and the intent is far from clear. Can you consider trying to make a smaller sample that shows the particular issue you need help with? – BradHards Oct 8 '13 at 3:29
