    formSubcomponent.setFieldOptions (fieldOptions)

Unfortunately that code is quite out of date now. The difference is that the map that contains the field options needs to be in the format:

[ optionId : optionValue ]

for example:

["10000":"Spinach", "10001":"Celery"]

I answered a question on this topic very recently, but the search is bad and I can't find it. The code for the answer is here:
