The controls are moveable but they usually will not be moved, so it may be possible to cache the results of at least part of what I'm computing. It also might be beneficial.

However, the biggest bottleneck is display I/O and the biggest constraint I have is memory, so really the part I have to get right first is how to draw to the display the least amount of times using a relatively small bitmap as my draw surface, and rendering over and over as I move through different parts of the display.

To complicate matters the size of the bitmap isn't necessary to be fixed. Basically if I allocate 100 pixels, I can create a bitmap of any size that's a total area of 100 pixels or less, so through optimization, I can potentially avoid redrawing controls more than once.

However, these things need to be tied together so it works properly. I can't just add the second optimization after the fact. I'd have to rewrite all of it.

That's the primary challenge I'm facing.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
