Trend View Class
We have added a new Trend View Class with a customized window size to be opened on a bigger screen. We named this new class Right Big View and added it in Library Structure> Trend System View Class together with the other views Right View, Top View etc. We now want to make a new trend templated with this new Right Big View but it won't show up in the drop down list Default view.
How can we add this new view to the dropdown list?

Did you get Sunny's tip to work? Here's another way of doing it:
Don't mix the "Main, Right, Left, Top, Only Trend" views of a trend with View Class. The right, left, top, etc. decides what & how to paint *inside* the trend window (compare with the "Config View" and "Main View" of an alarm list).
The View Class (X, Y-positions, Width, Height, Screen #) is selected from the Aspect Category: [Admin Structure]Administrative Objects/Inventory Object/Aspect Category:View Class Reference
Make a *copy* of the Trend System View class object; give it a new name, e.g. "Big Trend View Class" then implement your changes to the size, etc. to the Main View of it.
Then add a new aspect category of trend, e.g. "Big Trend"; on the newly added aspect category add a View Class Reference and have it to point to your new view class.
[Admin Structure]Administrative Objects/Inventory Object/Aspect Category/Big Trend:View Class Reference --> Big Trend View Class
You have to add Rules for it in the various aspects in Trend, System View Class.
For Example for Left View
- After you configure your parameters under "Names"
- Add Rules... preferable only for the nodes which have big screen.
- You will finf all Trend Displays on the node will open according to your View Class.
