eDrawings 2009 API Components Trouble

I am developing a VB6 application for a touch screen panel PC running XP using the eDrawings 2009 ActiveX control. I need big buttons that are easily touched, so I can not utilize the built-in drop down menu.

I want to emulate the "Hide Others" option on the drop down menu and I thought it would be easy to loop through each component and hide each that is not the selected component. This works, but it takes FOR-EV-ER. What the built in "Hide Others" method accomplishes in < 1 second takes my method >10 minutes! It appears that the model is re-rendered each time a component is hidden.

Anyone know a faster way to do this?

On a side note, there does not appear to be a 2009 SDK available for download. Anyone know where I can find further documentation on API properties (like ViewCamera and working with faces) not found in the 2008 SDK?

Thanks to everyone reading.
