I am new to ArcGIS JavaScript API and would like some help. I have a scenario where a user has to draw a graphic, mainly a polyline and some points on a map. To avoid confusion I want to limit the user to zoom in to street level prior to start drawing.

What I am trying to achieve here is when the user clicks on the locality he/she wants to draw on, on the click even the map zooms in to street layers.

I have been looking around but can't find a way to do it.

sounds like you should be listening to the map's 'click' event and calling a method like centerAndZoom(), passing in the mapPoint that is returned by the event and whatever zoom level you think would be appropriate.
