How to add a new button to the JSP XI R2 Crystal Reports Viewer toolbar?

Is there a way to add a new button to the (JSP-deployed) Crystal Reports viewer deployed in XI R2?  The closest file I can see to modify for my environment would be viewDHTMLReport.jsp.  I see various .NET examples that allow for this by modifying the control, but I'm not seeing a way to do this in the JSP version.  

crystalReportViewer in the Viewers JSP SDK provides methods that make it easy to disable the existing toolbar buttons, but I'm not sure how I can go about adding a new button.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Any help appreciated!

    I don't think you can add new buttons to the toolbar.  With most of the viewer I have used you can add a button to the form and place it so the viewer is undder it and it appears to be on the toolbar.

    Thanks for your response...  Yes - it doesn't seem I can get at the "construction" of the viewer itself.  Any insight on how I may be able to get at the form to edit?  Thanks...
