    Not sure which text control you mean, but you can usually do this and have it work:

    ControlRef tmpControl;
    ControlID tmpControlID; = 102;
    tmpControlID.signature = 'Flat';
    GetControlByID(GetControlOwner(theControl), &tmpControlID, &tmpControl);
    SetControlTitleWithCFString(tmpControl, CFSTR("Text can be changed dynamically."));
    This would work on a static text control, or any control with a title, obviously. You can also use SetControlProperty() and use the kControlStaticTextTextTag or kControlStaticTextCFStringTag constant, but you also have to provide a bunch of other params.
