We have extended and replaced the OSI version of the Enhanced Event Frame Table in PI Vision.  We are currently overwriting the OSIsoft code, replacing PIVisualization.sym-table.js with our version.

We were planning to change this and add a new tool pane that calls our version(We will be changing things like the name and icon):

 

If I create an enhanced tool and give it a  different type name:

 

It places the two instances in PV.symbolCatalog.defs, and I can call mine or OSIsofts:

 

 

However if I give both the same typeName, our custom code replaces the OSI code at runtime, effectively overloading the OSI version, without touching any OSI code:

 

 

 

Is this the default behavior?  If I create a custom control with the same typeName as an OSI control will my code always replace OSIs code a run time?
