Is it possible to extend a form by one field instead of overriding the complete form?
I would like to extend the “Adminhtml/Block/System/Store/Edit/Form.php” form by just one new field.
Now, do I have to copy the complete “_prepareForm()” function into my extending class, or would it be possible to take the already constructed form of the parent class and just extend it by one new field?
