Yes, it was my question. Translate commands for the graph from a dofile to the dialog box.
If it is possible it will be much more easier to make changes in existing graphs, especially for people, which are not quite familliar with graph syntax.
But it might be possible sometimes in the future.
Thanks and best Tomas

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
