I am building a map that you can hover over and click on. I need to access a feature's project number (ProjectNum) when I click on it, but my click event on the layer doesn't seem to be firing. When I click the map, I get all of the feature layer's project numbers, not the one that I want. How do I retrieve the specific project number of the polygon that I click on?

function clickMap(){

    layer.on("update-end", function(evt){
        map.on("click", function(e){
        console.log("project number: " + layer.graphics[0].attributes.ProjectNum);


You have to listen to the "click" event on the feature layer :

layer.on("click", function(evt){
