Ideas on how to programmatically create a ProcessBook Display

I'm wondering if anybody has any advice or ideas on how to create a ProcessBook display programmatically.


We are writing a C# windows form application using Visual Studio that will make it easy to retrieve and manipulate PI data.  Then we want the application to be able to launch ProcessBook and build trends on the fly with inputs from windows form application such as which tags to display over whatever time range we provide, formatting, etc.


My initial thought is we could just launch a prebuilt ProcessBook display that has some VB code written that can read a configuration file that is built by the C# Windows form application.  I'm also wondering if there is a more direct way to create the displays using the Object model within C#.


Any suggestions?
