GUIKit tool to select frames

Hi, below is a very naive attempt at using the GUIKit to plot a selected 
frame of an ensemble of frames.

The variable Global`data in plotDialog[] is a Matrix containing 100 
frames of 250 x 250 (Real numbers), it is obviously defined outside 

PlotDialog opens a window, display a frame selected by the slider. This 
was built by modifying the plotgroupdialog and slider in the GUIKit 
examples. The code looks horribly formatted below, but it looks a very 
little bit better when pasted in Mathematica.

Question: It is very slow with my 100X250X250 matrice when changing the 
display from one frame to another, can someone effective un GUIKit 
programming suggest a change that would make it more responsive?

Thanks in advance.

plotDialog=[] := GUIRunModal[Widget["Panel", 
    WidgetGroup[{Widget["MathPanel", {"preferredSize" -> Widget
["Dimension", {"width" -> 150, "height" -> 150}], 
        "usesFE" -> True}, WidgetLayout -> {"Stretching" -> {Maximize, 
Maximize}}, Name -> "canvas"], 
      WidgetGroup[{Widget["TextField", {"text" -> "", "columns" -> 3, 
"editable" -> False}, Name -> "textField"], 
        Widget["Slider", {BindEvent["change", Script[SetPropertyValue
[{"textField", "text"}, 
             ToString[PropertyValue[{"slider", "value"}], InputForm]]]], 
           Script[updatePlot[]]]}, Name -> "slider"]}, WidgetLayout -> 
Row], BindEvent["componentResized", 
       Script[updatePlot[]]], BindEvent["endModal", Script[Show[expr]]], 
      Script[updatePlot[] := Block[{slid, $DisplayFunction = Identity}, 
          slid = ToExpression[PropertyValue[{"slider", value}]]; expr = 
             PlotRange -> All]; SetPropertyValue[{"canvas", 
"mathCommand"}, ToString[expr, InputForm]]; 
           InvokeMethod[{"canvas", "repaintNow"}]; ]; updatePlot[]]}, 
WidgetLayout -> Column],
