Description

Plug-ins such as that for Select2 may also provide this method, please check their documentation for full details and all methods available for each. If this method is called on any other field types (e.g. text) an error will be thrown as the function will not exist.

This method is used to dynamically update the list of options that the user can select from. It can be used to fully replace the existing list of options, or optionally to append new options to the existing list. Note that the order is determined by the array passed in - the field types don't attempt to sort the options.
