Default Mel UI help

where would I find the code for the existing UI that comes with Maya. for example: the Revolve Options Window.

I want to look at the code for the UI so I know how to make a pretty UI, instead of it looking like a 3 year old designed it.

disassembling or decompiling code for maya goes against the user agreement and i wouldn't recommend it anyway.
Accept no substitutions.

I thought they were in a scripts folder or something. if it's not legal or easy, I won't bother. does anyone know of any tutorials on-line that deal with this issue?

I dont think you can get to the actual coding for the programme (otherwise everyone wouldbe bringing versions of maya out).

You can see what the MEL is for the actions that are preformed using the echo all commands function and the script editor.
