Conveyed viewpage.action shows "View Page" button instead of "Edit" button in the upper right corner of a page

When conveying "viewpage.action" everything works as expected, besides when viewing a page now I no longer get the "Edit" button in the upper right corner, but instead a "View Page" button only. I noticed in page.vm and page.vmd files that a "mode" decides what is rendered there, but couldn't figure out why it changed due to my conveyed action.

The conveyor-config.xml contains the following:

    <package-override name="pages" namespace="/pages">
        <action-override name="viewpage" class="my.package.actions.ViewPageOverrideAction" inherit="true">

My ViewPageOverrideAction only adds text to the content of the page:

    public String execute() throws Exception {
        return super.execute();

    public String getPageXHtmlContent() {
        String pageXHtmlContent = super.getPageXHtmlContent();
        return pageXHtmlContent + "I was added";

Why is it that I get the "View Page" button instead of the "Edit" button. How can I fix it? Any help would be appreciated.

Problem was that a method in ViewPageAction checks for the ViewPageClass.class. Solution is to override that method and exchange the class.

    public WebInterfaceContext getWebInterfaceContext() {
        DefaultWebInterfaceContext result = new DefaultWebInterfaceContext(super.getWebInterfaceContext());
        List<Label> labels = getPage() == null ? Collections.<Label> emptyList() : getPage().getLabelsForDisplay(
        result.setParameter("labels", labels);
        if (getClass().equals(ViewPageOverrideAction.class))
            result.setParameter(ViewingContentCondition.CONTEXT_KEY, Boolean.TRUE);
        return result;

Problem was that the WebInterfaceContext checks for the ViewPageAction.class. Overriding the following method and entering the ViewPageOverrideAction.class solves the problem.
