When you use linked subviews, make sure that you give them a name and
declare them to their parent view (which also needs a name then).
Declaring and naming is under "Browser / Template Info". Check chapter
3 and the appendix of the NPG for more background information on this.

After you have declared your linked subview to the parent view, you can
access it via its name, just like any other variable of the parent view.

I again strongly recommend reading "Programming for the Newton" and the
Newton Programmer's Guide. They cover 95% of the things you need to
