The only way to get syntax into a dialog box 
that I know is to type it, at least in the first instance. 
If you make use of the "Submit" feature, you can cut down on retyping. 

I am not sure what other way you had in mind. If 
you were imagining that you could take e.g. a .do 
file containing a command and ask Stata to use 
that file to populate a dialog box, then I'll just 
say that would seem a somewhat challenging programming 
problem.
