I see.  The basic problem is that the charting facility has no  
backpointers to the MASON core -- it just stores and updates raw data  
as it comes streaming in.  So you'll need to create a backpointer of  
some sort.

I can't speak to MultiTimeSeriesChartGenerator (this is I think not a  
MASON-standard class, right?), but let's consider  
TimeSeriesChartGenerator.  Each series plotted on the chart has an  
associated XYSeries and an associated TimeSeriesAttributes.  In this  
case what I would do is modify the TimeSeriesAttributes to hold onto  
the underlying object generating this property, and include a button  
where you can click on the attributes to pop up an inspector.  This is  
quite a bit of work right now, I'm afraid.
