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");
