When you analyze the custom Web control, use the Object Spy, Keyword View, Editor, and the Record option. Make sure you examine each of the elements described in Identifying the Building Blocks of Web Add-in Extensibility.

If you are not satisfied with the existing object identification or behavior, your Web control is a candidate for Web Add-in Extensibility, as illustrated in the following situations:
