do you mean the graph widget?
if that's what you mean, then...
sorry this isn't more helpful, but to get you started, the graph.lcb file
is in Tools/Extensions/com.livecode.widget.linegraph, if you want to try
reading through it.
it's only 1300 lines, total, including the docs. there is not that much
going on.
there are no private properties that i can see.
