What you need to say is:

(setf (pop-up-menu-default-item my-pop-up) 2)
(invalidate-view my-pop-up)


(setf (pop-up-menu-default-item my-pop-up) 1)
(view-focus-and-draw-contents my-pop-up)

Whether you use invalidate-view or view-focus-and-draw-contents depends
on whether you want the drawing to happen right now
(view-focus-and-draw-contents) or the next time event processing happens
