How to add add-in button to existing command bar tab?

Hi All,


I have created couple of Solidworks Add-in using Solidworks SDK template. But when I deploy the add-ins, they create their own command bar tab. I have searched a lot on google but failed to get some information.


It make sense to add both buttons to one command bar tab rather than having each button on separate command bar tab. One way to achieve this is by merging codes for both add-ins into one and then you can crate multiple buttons on same command bar. But in future, if one of the button is no longer required and you try to uninstall the add-in, it will uninstall the whole add-in. Is there any way to do it or has anyone here done it?


I have manged to add them to existing menu but not to existing command bar tab.


I am using Solidworks 2013, SP 0.0 and Visual Studio 2015 to write my codes in C#.
