Near the bottom of this code there are 2 labels. if they are set to value='' then the span has no size, which is fine. but later when I set their values in java, they do not appear (unless they had a value from the start). do I need some kind of redraw()/refresh() on the page or the span or the labels? thanks for any suggestion!

<?page id="mainPage"?>
<window id="mainWindow" title="EzTAB" height="100%" width="100%" >
    <center border="0">
                <tabbox id="mainTabBox" vflex="1">
                    <tabs id="mainTabs">
                       <tab id="homeTab" label="Home" />
                      <tab id="codebookTab" label="Selections" />
                      <tab id="runReportTab" label="Run Report" />
                      <tab id="logoutTab" label="Logout" />
                       <tabpanel style="background:#111bab">
                            <include id="homeTabPanel" src="/homePanel2.zul"/>
                       <tabpanel id="selectionsTabpanel">
                            <include mode="defer" id="selectionsTabpanelInclude" src="/selectionsPanel.zul"/>
                      <tabpanel>run report</tabpanel>
                           <include id="logoutTabPanel" src="/logoutPanel.zul"/>
        <span style="width:100%;">
<div style="float:left; padding-left:40%;"><label id='filenameMsg' value='Filename:'/></div>
<div style="float:right; padding-right:10px;"><label id='totalsMsg' value=' '/></div>

It does not need to redraw() or refresh() the page when set label's value. Just call filenameMsg.setValue("xxx"). Can you post the code snippets of how you set label's value?
