Description

Description:
Find display by its IDD (which is defined in the description.ext or config).
If the specified display can't be found displayNull ("No display") is returned, (which can be tested with the isNull command.) The primary display uses IDD 46. (eg: findDisplay 46). This will return displayNull on a dedicated server (so be sure to check isDedicated if using this in a waitUntil condition).

Syntax

Syntax:
Display = findDisplay idd
Parameters:
idd: Number
Return Value:
Display

findDisplay does not find displays defined under RscTitles (even when they are visible).
To access those types of displays, either assign the resource to a global variable, or pass its this value to a script, during the onLoad event: e.g.
class RscTitles {
  class MyRsc {
     onLoad = "myDisplay = (_this select 0)"; // or
     // onLoad = "_this execVM 'myDialog.sqf'";
     ...

You can then use the stored value as you would for regular dialogs: (myDisplay displayCtrl 1111) ctrlSetText "hello there");

I have tested the behavior of this command and I found out that it [ findDisplay ] appears to only return the display AFTER any onLoad event handler of that display is done. So, using findDisplay inside an onLoad event handler is useless.
