you can remove the field and the replace it again with another HTMLEditor field.

with one of the following functions,


$this->fields->removeFieldFromTab('TabName', 'MyFieldName');

and then you can add a HTMLEditorFiled

with the following function,

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new DropdownField('PageColor', 'Page Color', self::$colors), $this->PageColor);
