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).

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, e.g.(myDisplay displayCtrl 1111) ctrlSetText "hello there");
