At the moment, the quickest way for me was to add an 'ArrayList of the agents' my class that extends the SimState. Using the Model tab, somehow, I can access to the state of the agent using the magnifying icon. The only annoying think is that when I re-start the simulation, the object is 'lost' and I have to re-open it.
I will follow your advice.

Using the MultiTimeSeriesChartGenerator, I have 93 timeseries charts (one for each of the 93 countries/agents that are of interest to us).
What I want is to add an inspector to these charts so that when I click on the chart I can view and modify state of the country/agent.
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.
