mouseUp mouseButtonNumber

mouseUp3 -lets me save but doesn't work
mouseUp 3 - gives Not a valid parameter name message
mouseUp mouseButtonNumber 3 - gives Not a valid parameter name message

I don't understand what the syntax is supposed to look like and the dictionary doesn't have an example for me to steal.

Line graph widget Questions

Is there a way to control the y-axis? cap the high number, or set the increment numbers?

Is there a way to have full line and dashed lines at the same time?
