SugarCRM 7  How can I re-render a multi enum?

I want to change the dropdown options on a multi-enum (descriptors) based on another dropdown (product).

Dependencies and visibility grids don't help here because they don't work on multienum (as far as I know).

I have gotten as far as changing the options property on the filed but it won't render the new list on change.


 
   extendsFrom: 'RecordView',     initialize: function(options){
      this._super('initialize', [options]);
      this.model.on('change:case_product_c', this.toggleDescriptors, this);
   },
   render: function()
   {
      this._super('render');
   },
   toggleDescriptors : function(){
     var case_descriptor_c = this.model.fields['case_descriptor_c'],
     descriptor_dropdown = 'case_'+this.model.get('case_product_c').replace(' ','_') +'_descriptor_dd';
     case_descriptor_c.options = descriptor_dropdown;
     console.log(case_descriptor_c);
   },
                         
The above code works to set the dropdown correctly when the page first loads (the dropdpwn contains the right items based on the selected product of the record being loaded), but when I change the product it changes the case_descriptor_c.options (I have verified this in the log) but not the actual values displayed (when I click in the box I get the old list again)...

I believe I have to render the field again, but I don't know how...
Any hints?

thanks,
