Don't know if this is the right forum for this but... yeah... anyway...

For various reasons I have to do a custom made user system kind-of -thing. I have a dataobject which represent the member that looks like this:

class Medlem extends DataObject {   
   static $db = array(
      'Fornamn' => 'Varchar',
      'Efternamn' => 'Varchar',
   'Losenord' => 'Varchar(64)'
   static $has_one = array(
      //'Avatar' => 'Image'
      'MinOrganisation' => 'Organisation'

   function getCMSFields_forPopup() {
      $fields = new FieldSet(
         new TabSet("Root",
            new Tab(
            $title = 'Main',
               new TextField("Fornamn", "Förnamn"),
               new CalendarDateField("Medlemsdatum", "Datum för medlemskap")
            new Tab('Medlemsuppgifter',
               new HeaderField("Medlemsuppgifter"),
               new ConfirmedPasswordField('Losenord','Lösenord',null,null,false,'Bekräfta lösenordet')

    return $fields;

The problem is that the ConfirmedPasswordField doesn't validate. Seems like there is some javascript missing but I can't figure out how to get it there. Anyone who knows?

I'd say have a look at the popup that occurs with MemberTableField. Afaicr there's a confirmedpasswordfield as well, see how that works.

In most cases, js-validation of formfields did not work in the CMS (2.3 will be different I think), only on frontend. Not sure how it's with the passwordfield though - but I do know the popup of membertablefield has it - so I figure your solution must be there.
