#StackBounty: #magento-1.9 #adminhtml #fieldsets Update native field properties

Bounty: 50

I’ve just finished building an extended password policy module, which allows for customisable control over the rules for creating / updating a password.

The general idea is that you can set the minimum characters, whether the password should contain a special character, uppercase character, etc…

The module works as expected, however there is no indication to the admin what rules he needs to follow when creating / updating an account.

I’ve found the form I need to update, Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Permissions_User_Edit_Tab_Main, and the field that needs editting and the property that needs adding:

$fieldset->addField('password', 'password', array(
    'after_element_html' => '<small># Output Rules Here #</small>',

My problem is I don’t really want to extend the Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Permissions_User_Edit_Tab_Main class and rewrite the entire _prepareForm() method, it’d be preferable to target that particular form and that particular field and update the properties, but I can’t seem to find out if that is even possible.

Any help would be appreciated.
