    Usually, the best way to modify a view is using the
SetValue(frame,'slot,value) function to change its properties, because
it causes the view to be redrawn inmediately.

    If you cannot use it for any reason, the manual way would be: make
any modification to the slots of a view, send a view:dirty() message
to the view, and then issue a refreshViews() command.
