CPU Load with Trend Windows

It is recommended to take advantage of the PCs graphic card hardware acceleration when using OPC Trend.NET.  Some systems do not properly support Window mode rendering, so the default of RenderMode3D property of all trend components is set to Bitmap.  If you are developing applications using the OPCTrendControl it is recommended to try Window mode rendering, but if the system does not support it the application will fail, so you should provide a selectable way to set the property back to Bitmap for the user.

In OPC Trends and Alarms select Configure-Options to set the Rendering Mode from Bitmap to Window.
