I'm not sure what it is what you're asking for, but if you want to use a locator to trace a curve you can do something like

Module[{p = {0, 1}, temp},
 temp[t_] := Exp[- t];
 Row[{
   LocatorPane[Dynamic[p, (p[[2]] = temp[#[[1]]]; p[[1]] = #[[1]]) &],
     Plot[temp[t], {t, 0, 5}, PlotRange -> {Automatic, {0, 1}},
     ImageSize -> 400],
    {{0, 0}, {5, 1}}],
   Dynamic[Grid[{{"Time:", p[[1]]}, {"Temp:", p[[2]]}}]]}]]
